Canon's VIXIA HF M31 Dual Flash Memory Camcorder gives you high def recording, digital still capture, and a myriad of user-friendly features and functions. The camera records 1920 x 1080 HD video and 3.3MP still images to a 32GB internal flash memory or to SD/SDHC memory cards, including Eye-Fi memory cards. At the heart of the camera, a 3.89MP Full HD CMOS sensor and Canon's DIGIC DV III Image Processor work together to help you capture detailed and clear footage.
Other core tools that help you record include a 2.7" touch panel LCD, Dynamic SuperRange Optical Image Stabilization, and a Canon 15x HD Video Lens. Features like 18x Advanced Zoom, 24p Mbps AVCHD recording, and the option to record in 24p Cinema or 30p Progressive Frame modes also help you to make the most out of your videos.
In addition to these main functions the HF M31 also provides you with microphone and headphone terminals for advanced audio recording and a Mini Advanced Accessory Shoe for attaching optional Canon accessories such as lights and microphones. And other key highlights of the FH M31, a built-in video light and a built-in flash, help with recording in low-light situations.
Among the various user-friendly features the camcorder gives you Face Detection, Smart Auto, and Touch & Track applications for getting the shot just right. The HF M31 is PictBridge compatible and comes with Canon's Pixela ImageMixer 3SE Video Editing Software for editing and uploading of your recorded footage.
Flash Memory Recording
The advantages of flash memory go beyond the added recording time. You'll also appreciate the quick response time, because there are no moving parts. In addition, when you review, you'll have quick access to your footage. Another plus is the VIXIA HF M31's low power consumption rate, allowing your battery to last longer. And if your HF M31 happens to slip, or you accidentally knock it against something, you'll be happy to know that flash memory makes your camcorder more shock-resistant than other recording storage systems. It also minimizes the chance of data loss if there is damage to your recording media or to the moving parts found in other camcorders
