Summary: it was complicated to download into iMovie, think I have it now though. It is compact and recordings come out very nice as far as quality of pictures... It has both a memory card and internal memory so when using it you need to know which you are using or you will see a memory full message.
Summary: I have to agree with most of the other reviews already on here. This camera has a lot of great qualities - it is very small, easy to use from a recording standpoint, and has a huge internal battery - we basically recorded relatively short videos (2-3 minutes) from late October to late June without...
Summary: I was forced to buy this camara as there were no more camara's with the mini dvd left on the market. Yes it's easy to use. point and record. I cannot tell you about the sound or quality of picture bacause I can't get my videos off the stupid thing.
Summary: Great little camcorder!!! Sound could be better, But picture is outstanding! I'd tried one of the other Canon's ( the HF R20) and was very disappointed! ( short battery life+ other stuff). If you're looking for just a plain ol' do the job camcorder, the FS31 is it.
An excellent camera - Easy to Use and Carry around

Summary: I am not a huge fan of Cam-coders simply because my first preference is always a photograph..(yup... in the age of viral videos and I am old fashioned geek!!) However, I had to get one (thanks to my Son's school programs) and I spent quite a lot of time searching for the right camera.
Summary: This is a nice small Camcorder with a very easy to use format. How ever if your computer is a Mac the soft ware you get in the kit will not work on Apple.I have contacted Canon asking what I can do about this.
