Canon’s unique HD technologies packaged inside a compact, stylish design – the result is the LEGRIA HF M306, a camcorder with image quality that packs a punch, but is small enough to carry anywhere.

Memory card recording

Record directly to high capacity SDHC memory cards – a 32GB card can store over 12 hours of HD movies at the most efficient setting. For maximum quality, shoot at 24Mbps. Cards are perfect for sharing.

Easy HD shooting

Shooting HD has never been easier. Smart Auto’s scene recognition technology optimises settings according to the situation, whether it’s a dramatic sunset or a family event. Instant AF achieves pin-sharp focus quickly and Face Detection Technology optimises shooting settings for perfect people shots.

Touch-screen technology

The LEGRIA HF M306 provides a unique way to control your camcorder. The large 6.8cm (2.7”) touch-screen enables you to control of the camcorder’s shooting and playback functions with simple on-screen gestures for a new, more intuitive way of movie-making.

Canon HD Camera System

The Canon HD Camera System combines a 3.3MP Full HD CMOS sensor, an 18x optical zoom Canon HD Video Lens and the DIGIC DV III processor to deliver superb Full HD movies.

Dynamic OIS and Powered IS

When shooting video, small shakes of the camcorder can appear magnified in playback. To counter this, the LEGRIA HF M306 uses two systems of image stabilisation – Dynamic Optical Image Stabilizer reduces shake caused when shooting while walking and Powered Image Stabilizer keeps the image steady for telephoto shots.


Easy-to-use PIXELA™ software is supplied for editing movies and simple upload for sharing online. Or with Canon’s DW-100 DVD Burner (available separately) burn DVDs at the touch of a button – no PC required.

Pre REC, 25p Cinema Mode – plus 3.3MP stills

The LEGRIA HF M306 has many shooting features for creating better movies. In Pre REC mode, the camcorder starts recording three seconds before the Record button is pressed, so you won’t miss any of the action. 25p cinema mode creates more cinematic-looking movies. And you can even snap 3.3MP still photos to complement your movies.
