    So far, I've found it to be great. It does very well in relatively low light (plus I have the hotshoe light if needed), images are clean and artifact-free. Honestly, I don't have much of a benchmark for comparison - my previous camcorder was a standard-def Panasonic miniDV - small sensor, lots of noise, and a 42x optical zoom (but only digital IS).


    Frankly, I really wish there was a TDP-like site that offered Bryan-quality comparisons of Canon camcorders!!


    As it was, I made my decision based mainly on spec - the HF M41 seemed most analogous to the 5DII in some ways, i.e. it uses the same sensor models as which cost substantially more, and the added features weren't compelling for my limited experience with video. Based on specs, I liked the fact that is does not have extra pixel density (which is often included for higher MP still photos, but I've got that well-covered), so the pixel sizes are as large as possible for HD video capture with that overall sensor size.


    Not sure if that helps, but so far, I'm happy with it!

    Don't. If nothing else, those temps will kill your Li-ion batteries in less than a workday.

    Thanks John, That's one I hadn't thought of.

    Thanks for the input, John...that does help. I like the thought process that went into picking that particular one.. &lt;Sigh&gt; something else to add to my list.


    And Bob, I would never leave my camera in the car, specially a hot car. I don't even leave my tennis racquets. [:$]


    Sean: I'll look into it. Unlike the stats built up in Lightroom, I don't have a good capture of what colors I predominantly wear that may match the T3i colors.
