Features

Flash Memory


The VIXIA HF M30 allows you to record up to 3 hours of clear high definition video to an 8GB internal flash drive or to a removable SD memory card. With Relay Recording, the camcorder automatically switches video recording from the internal drive to the SD memory card when the memory becomes full. No need then to worry about running out of recording time during a thrilling, once-in-a-lifetime shot.


You’ll also have the flexibility of copying video from your VIXIA HF M30’s internal drive to the removable SD memory card. That makes it easy to insert the card into your computer or HDTV’s card reader and view your recorded footage immediately.

* Size of built-in memory in VIXIA HF M30

The maximum memory capacity and recording time can be substantially increased by the combination of the internal memory and the size of the SD memory card chosen. For example, the VIXIA HF M30's 8GB of internal memory, combined with a removable 32GB memory card, would give 40GB in total memory capacity, and 15 hours 15 minutes of recording time at the LP setting.

MXP and FXP modes record in 1920 x 1080 and require a Class 4 or higher SDHC Card

The advantages of flash memory go beyond the added recording time. You'll also appreciate the quick response time, because there are no moving parts. Press the record button and your VIXIA HF M30 starts recording video faster than you've ever seen before. In addition, when you review, you'll have quick access to your footage.

Another plus is the VIXIA HF M30's low power consumption rate, allowing your battery to last longer. It's just what you need so you don't miss that pivotal play on the field or the moment when they say "I do."

While we certainly hope you keep your VIXIA HF M30 securely in your hand while shooting, if it happens to slip, or you accidentally knock it against something, you'll be happy to know that flash memory makes your camcorder more shock-resistant than other recording storage systems. It also minimizes the chance of data loss if there is damage to your recording media or to the moving parts found in other camcorders.
