Recording Options Mean You'll Never Miss a Minute of Great Video

Record to Internal Flash Drive or SD Memory Card

The camcorder's internal 32GB Flash Drive holds up to 12 hours of crisp, high-definition video safely and securely. With no moving parts, flash memory technology is perfectly able to withstand camcorder jolts or drops. You can also record to a removable SD memory card, making it easy to share your video with friends and family. Conveniently sized and readily available, SD cards give you up to 64GB (24 hours) of recording capacity for a combined capacity of 96GB or 36 hours. For added flexibility, you can even back up your video directly to an external hard drive by using the optional UA-100 USB Adapter.

SDXC Compatibility

In addition to SD memory cards, the VIXIA HF M52 camcorder is compatible with super-high capacity Secure Digital Expanded Capacity (SDXC) cards. The same convenient size as a standard SD card, an SDXC card can hold up to 2,048 GB, and provides ultra-fast data transfer. It's an excellent option for family reunions, vacations and any time you know you'll require extra memory.

Relay Recording

With Relay Recording, you never have to worry about whether you're reaching maximum capacity on the camcorder's internal flash drive. When the internal drive is full, the system automatically switches recording over to the SD memory card. This reassuring backup system means you'll never miss capturing an important scene again.

Connect Directly to External Drives

When it comes to saving your memories, the VIXIA HF M52 camcorder offers plenty of flexibility. In addition to traditional file storage methods, you can connect the camcorder directly to an external hard disk drive by using the optional UA-100 USB adapter to store video files safely and securely without a computer, an economical option for high-capacity storage on vacations or other trips. Using a USB connection, you can even play video on a TV via the camcorder.
