Professional-level Sensor for Professional-quality Images

Newly Designed Canon HD CMOS Pro Image Sensor

Equipped with the same high-powered image sensor found in professional models, the compact
VIXIA HF M500 camcorder captures 1080p Full HD video with the rich, vivid quality of a much more upscale camcorder. The professional-level 1/3-inch native 1920 x 1080, HD CMOS Pro Image Sensor has a large pixel size that captures more available light to deliver superb imaging. Technical refinements including a thinner on-chip microlens, improved color filter transmittance and deeper, wider photodiode allow 20% higher light transmittance*. Additional light to the sensor means that video shot in low-light situations is brighter and clearer, with better noise suppression. The newly extended dynamic range is exceptionally wide, producing enhanced gradation and natural, lifelike realism in high-contrast scenes.

*20% improved low-light performance compared to the Canon HD CMOS Pro Image Sensor used in Canon's 2011 VIXIA Camcorders.
