  • Summary: I have the Canon VIXIA HF M31 and used an SD card to capture video. Everything was fine until I moved one of the clips to my mac from the SD card. Now the camcorder will not recognized the card. I had normally used this card in my Canon Rebel 3Ti, so I had it format the card to see if that would help. Still doesn't recognize the card. As a last ditch effort I moved all items from the card to "trash" on my Mac, essentially clearing all information on the card.

A great Camcorder, built solid, has good storage where no SD card needed

  • Summary: This is a good camcorder in which I highly recommend. The new Canon camcorders are junk compared to this because they are built cheap. The new camcorders no longer have a flash for the photo shots and no light for the video meaning they are only work in good lighting. Also they do not have a dedicated photo button meaning you have to touch the screen to take a photo. This camcorder has all that plus takes good photos and video and is built solid.

  • Summary: A great camera! I need to send it for a repair though… It was refurbished so I should probably expect some issues. The headphone output doesn't work.

Love it so far

Marcus Bryant, Amazon

  • Summary: 2 weeks in - So far so good. I have recorded at the beach and it brings a beautiful video out, but like many others have said the digital zoom is garbage... very unstable. Also I will note I do hear the noise as well of the stabilizer. Also videod fireworks for New years. The video came out surprisingly clear, a good even contrast for the colors, smoke and darkness.

Ease of use is questionable...

Brian C "Com4tablyNumb71", Amazon

  • Summary: I'm a very technically savvy person, but I find full on camcorders to be a bit too technical and complex for what they are supposed to do. This product is great and has all the bells and whistles and the video imaging quality is incredible (I am always going to be a fan of Canon when it comes to image quality). If you are looking for a unit that can do it all, then this is a great product. If you are looking for something simple, then this is not it.

Love this camera but beware using in bright sun

Dwight L. Short, Amazon

  • Summary: I have owned this camera for over a year now and the pictures it takes and the video you can produce is remarkable. You will read many other reviews about getting an external mic if you are doing high quality shots that are to be used for clients or for presentations as the sound in the camera alone is mediocre at best. The one feature that I have not been able to reconcile is taking video in bright sunlight on soccer and sports fields since there is no eyepiece.

Does the job

  • Summary: Nice camcorder. Like the internal memory capacity and SD card option. The touchscreen could be a little more user friendly. And the included software could be more useful for video editing. Overall it takes high quality HD video and decent pictures for the general user.

A home run product with few drawbacks

Harold Corbin, Amazon
21 February 2012
  • Summary: After using this camera for a few months, I feel ready to share my thoughts and experiences for those that are considering this model for purchase: PROS: 1. HD VIDEO: quality is outstanding for a camera in this price range. If there is sufficient lighting, then you will be very pleased. 2. EDITING: On-camera playback and editing is very quick and easy.

"Good camera but get it on sale."

hc2255, CNET

  • Pros: Works well in all light. It's very light and easy to put on tripods
  • Cons: The onscreen menu is so bad that it's useless, however, just use the remote control.
