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 in our bright light tests, but its low light performance was mostly a disappointment.
The HF M31 is part of a series from Canon that includes the HF M30 (8GB internal memory) and HF M300 (SD/SDHC memory card only).
