Instant AF achieves pin-sharp focus quickly and Face Detection Technology optimises shooting settings for perfect people shots.

Touch-screen technology

Canon HD Camera System
The Canon HD Camera System combines a 3.3MP Full HD CMOS sensor, an 18x optical zoom Canon HD Video Lens and the DIGIC DV III processor to deliver superb Full HD movies.

Dynamic OIS and Powered IS

When shooting video, small shakes of the camcorder can appear magnified in playback. To counter this, the LEGRIA HF M31 uses two systems of image stabilisation – Dynamic Optical Image Stabilizer reduces shake caused when shooting while walking and Powered Image Stabilizer keeps the image steady for telephoto shots.

Easy sharing

Sharing your videos is easier than ever before with the LEGRIA HF M31. In-camera HD to SD conversion lets you reduce the size of your files in-camera, while the bundled PIXELA software makes uploading a breeze.

Pre REC, 25p Cinema Mode – plus 3.3MP stills

The LEGRIA HF M31 has many shooting features for creating better movies. In Pre REC mode, the camcorder starts recording three seconds before the Record button is pressed, so you won’t miss any of the action. 25p cinema mode creates more cinematic-looking movies. And you can even snap 3.3MP still photos to complement your movies.

Flexible system

The LEGRIA HF M31 has a built-in HDMI connection for direct output to an HDTV, while a built-in mic and headphone jack enable you to capture better audio. The mini Advanced Accessory Shoe and a range of accessories – including the WP-V2 Waterproof case for taking your camcorder swimming or snorkelling – allow the HF M31 to grow with your experience.
