Canon Legria HF M31 Full HD camcorder


Full HD flash memory-based camcorder with 32GB of inbuilt memory

Canon - Legria HF M31


The Canon Legria HF M31 camcorder is based on hardware that we have previously seen in the Legria HF21. Both models use a 6.35mm CMOS sensor to record Full HD video using AVCHD. They also both ...

Canon has updated its HF21 camcorder with the addition of a touchscreen and the resulting HF M31 is a decent piece of kit, but it is far from perfect. The touchscreen lacks sensitivity and the price seems at least £100 too high for a camcorder that is...
