  • Very good video at highest quality setting; nice lens performance
  • Poorly designed touch-screen menu system, short battery life, defaults to low-quality video mode
  • At its best, the Canon Vixia HF M3x series--composed of the M300, M30, M31, and M32--delivers a very good blend of video quality, features, and performance for the money, but some people may find the touch-screen interface extremely frustrating to use...

  • 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...

  Published: 2005-01-01, review by: review-shop.com

  • Abstract:  I needed to get a new camcorder to record my newborn. Even though I had a camcorder already, it was a tape-based, non-HD model, which required video capture over FireWire, which was time consuming and generally inconvenient. I looked at several HD mod...

  • 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...

  • Abstract:  The perfect family camcorder should be easy to operate by each and everyone; from adult to child. The tiny Canon LEGRIA HF M31 manages this perfectly thanks to its superb touch-screen and low button count. But don’t get the wrong impression: despite it...

  Published: 2010-09-17, review by: itreviews.com

  • Abstract:  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...

  • Good video and photo quality for outdoors shots, Very high bitrate setting, 32GB of internal flash memory, Excellent image stabiliser
  • Poorly implemented touchscreen control system, Image quality degrades in lowlight conditions, Dual Shot automatic mode is too limited
  • In the right circumstances, the Canon Legria HF M31's picture quality can easily impress. But poor low-light performance and a sorely misjudged control system let down this otherwise decent camcorder...

  • 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 excepti...
