Design

Canon excels at making handheld camcorders that are both stylish and traditional. The HF M52 doesn't look special; it looks like a normal camcorder that is too big to fit in your pocket, but will slip in your medium-sized purse or bag with ease. Canon's hand strap is one of the better straps found on a mid-range camcorder, and the overall shape of the M52 allows the camcorder to fit in your palm decently. The HF M52 does use a touchscreen LCD, as is the case with almost all consumer models these days.
