Summary: The Canon Vixia HF M40 reminds me of a Caesar salad with with too many radishes and meat and not enough ranch dressing. In other words it needs to trim down on cost, reinvent the touchscreen interface, fine tune its bread and butter (image quality) in direct sunlight. Canon take this criticism into account and reinvent the video industry once again.
