This video talks about camcorder features that are important to me, for making how-to videos and reviews for my YouTube Channel, my Blog and for Vimeo. It shows what I do and don’t like about the Canon Vixia HF R40 Video Camera and why I decided to keep it. The primary reason I decided to keep it, is because it will save in full 1080 HD in MP4 format on an SD-HC card. This means I can import the video file directly into Camtasia Studio 8, without converting the file in a 3rd party program (which has always resulted in a loss of quality, in my experience).
If you have a Vixia Wifi Camcorder and are interested in learning what app to download, and how to connect your camera to your mobile device as a wifi remote control. See my video about that topic in more detail: vimeo.com/86585581
Before the Canon HF R40, I bought and returned a Sony Handycam HDR-CX330. At the top of the list I things that I hated about the Sony CX330 was the fact that it would not save in 1080p to SC card in MP4 format. It would only save 1920×1080 in AVCHD, not MP4. Also, the touchscreen was a disaster. It made me feel like giant with humongous fingers that couldn’t isolate a single option. Awful! There were many other things I hated about the CX330, but that’s another review
