The Canon FS31 Dual Flash Memory camcorder is lightweight, compact and user-friendly, records stunning video - and does it all at an affordable price.

As employed in advanced electronic products such as laptop computers, MP3 players, PDAs and cell phones, flash memory has numerous benefits. With the Canon FS31, you're able to record to both the camcorder's substantial 16GB internal flash drive and a removable SD card. Not only does dual flash memory give you extended recording space, but it also gives you added flexibility in file transfer and playback. You'll have a chance to catch and share even more of your life's special moments with the FS31. Adding to the usefulness of this camcorder is Quick Charge - which reduces the recharge time for the FS31's battery, and Pre-Record which gives you a head start on capturing the action. With Canon Exclusive features such as Canon 41x Advanced Zoom and our DIGIC DV II Image Processor, combined with a 2.7 inch Widescreen LCD, Quick Charge and our new Dynamic IS - you've got a flash memory camcorder that's both hard to beat and unmistakably Canon.
