Re: Help Urgently Needed re Canon Vixia HF S20 Camcorder

Tom, thanks for the advice. I have found a chap in Plymouth who is going to transfer the 6.3 hours of footage from my SDHC card to PAL DVD-Rs 'at the highest possible bitrate' so that picture quality will not deteriorate too much. I have a DVD recorder with a DV firewire out port so it is my intenti...

Re: Help Urgently Needed re Canon Vixia HF S20 Camcorder

Tom, Thanks for the advice. I'm still ploughing through the handbook trying to find the HD-SD conversion procedure. As I am not a 'techie' it takes me a little longer to master the finer points.!!
Thanks again, Adrian.

Adrian

Help Urgently Needed re Canon Vixia HF S20 Camcorder

Just before Christmas I bought a Canon Vixia HF S20 camcorder in America assuming that it had a DV out port. When I got home I proceeded to film 8 school nativity plays for my grandson's school, promising that I would do them DVDs at a very nominal cost (£2) so that parents could see their children ...
