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 1920x1080 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
