Canon HF M301 Camcorder
by Elizabeth Thummel
I am interested in knowing your review of the Canon HF M301 camcorder kit, available from Costco for $299 after a rebate of $50. Seems to be a great price. I looked up specs on it at the Canon site,
It appears to have the features that you recommend, including a Microphone Terminal: 3.5 mm stereo mini-jack. Can it be used with the Rode VideoMic that you have recommended, i.e., does it have the required shoe to attach it? I would be recording videos of how to do crafts using a tripod. Could this camcorder be used with a wireless mic?
The audio info from the Canon site says,
'...The sound is captured from all directions (five different pickup sensors) so your home movies will look and sound more lifelike than ever before. The built-in Microphone terminal with manual audio level control and Headphone terminal also provides exceptional audio flexibility.
* Optional SM-V1 5.1-Channel Surround Microphone is required...'
If it says it is 'optional,' why does it say it is 'required?'
It is not available at Amazon.
Thanks for any input!
