July 14, 2010 Canon unveiled a new dual memory HD camcorder, the Vixia HF M32 . The design closely follows that of the M31 but doubles the built-in flash to 64GB and upgrades the card slot to support SDXC. With a lower bitrate, Canon believes the camera could hold a full day of video in built-in memory alone and another day again with a 64GB SDXC card. The HF M32 will be available in September 2010.
The HF M32 is now the top mid-range HD camcorder from Canon. However, other than the increase in built-in flash memory to 64GB, and the ability to record using SDXC memory cards, the Canon HF M32 appears to be exactly like its predecessor. The HF M32 has the same 1/4-inch CMOS sensor with a total pixel count of 3.89 megapixels, and its lens has a 15x optical zoom, just like the previous HF M series camcorders from Canon.
After the video session, owners can produce standard definition versions of videos without losing the HD original and can share video over Wi-Fi if they have fast Eye-Fi cards.
Shipments of the HF M32 start in September, when Canon will ship it for $1,000.
