We have a terrible memory. Many's the morning we find ourselves stumbling into work with no recollection whatsoever of the previous night. No such problems for the Canon Legria HF M32 camcorder, which gives you not one but two memory options.

As well as 64GB built-in flash memory, the M32 takes new high-capacity SDXC memory cards. It also supports Eye-Fi Pro X2 Wi-Fi cards for wireless image transfer.

Under the bonnet, the M32 packs a 3.3-megapixel CMOS sensor. It boasts an 18x zoom and 69mm (2.7-inch) touchscreen. A face-detection feature finds up to 35 faces in the frame.

The M32 lets you create montages of 2-, 4- or 8-second clips culled from longer videos. You can add music to the montage and save the full playlist, with music, as a single standard-definition movie file.

The Legria HF M32 arrives in September. Pricing is yet to be confirmed.
