Canon Vixia HF M31 Camcorder Review

 

The HF M31 ($799) is a new mid-range HD camcorder from Canon that is essentially last year's Canon HF20 with a few minor tweaks and updates-including a new touchscreen interface and a slick menu redesign. The camcorder captured some high-quality video...

If you're familiar with last year's HF20 from Canon, then you shouldn't have any problem recognizing most of the features and controls on the Canon HF M31. The two camcorders have the same lens and image sensors, which means their video performance was...

Best budget HD camcorder

 

If you're looking for the best high-definition camcorder under $800, reviewers say the Canon Vixia HF M31 is your best bet. Your videos won't be quite as clear and colorful as with high-end camcorders like the top-rated Panasonic HDC-TM700 (*Est....

Reasonable price, hD video quality, good features for the price

Struggles in dim light, subpar battery life, touch screen gets mixed reviews

Canon Legria HF M31 Full HD camcorder

 

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

Good feature set for asking price, attractive HD video in optimum lighting, external microphone jack

Specifications could be a little beefier, occasional noise issues, no accessory shoe for external microphones

The Canon Legria HF M31 is a pint-sized powerhouse of a camcorder packed with plenty of useful features. Whether you require a point-and-shoot camera or something a little more advanced, it should fit the bill.

Canon Legria HF M31 review

 

With a retail price of £849, the Canon Legria HF M31 slots somewhere between the HF S10 and HF M300 as Canon's upper midrange offering. It can be viewed as a jack-of-all-trades, providing an above-average performance across the board.

To assess the Canon Legria HF M31’s video performance, we shot a variety of footage in different testing conditions and then played back the footage on a Pioneer KURO PDP-C509A plasma TV. In sunny environments, the Canon Legria HF M31 produced...

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...

Satisfied, Relieved, Ready to Film

 

I knew this thing was going to be small, but it still surprised me how little it was. But it's fully functional and I'm already getting used to it. I'm a lefty living in a righty world, but I found it very simple to operate this camera with my "dumb"...

Works as advertised. Very decent quality and manufacture. Smooth functionality. Very good jitter reduction (with 3 different settings). Touch screen that is responsive and works. Decent auto-settings that allow "point and shoot" operation for both...

A learning curve for amateurs (like me). High Def is just like any other video medium: you're gonna need proper lighting to get the best video. This is not a limitation of the camera, but merely a law of filming in general. If you want to film in low...
