Choose the Recording Format to Fit the Situation The Right Format for Any Use
Dual Recording and built-in transcoding ensure that no matter how you decide to use the video you've recorded, you'll have the right format available. Using the power of the DIGIC DV 4 Image Processor, the VIXIA HF R50 camcorder can simultaneously record video to internal memory in AVCHD format, and to an SD card in MP4 format^. The widely used MP4 format provides quick, conversion-free playback on tablets and smartphones, and lets you upload videos directly to social networking sites for easy sharing with friends, family and the world. AVCHD is perfect for watching videos on an HDTV or archiving them to Blu-ray discs. The camcorder also has a built-in transcoding function that converts AVCHD files to MP4s, or from MP4 to MP4 across memory media, making them easy to upload to the Web or save to an SD card.
^ Simultaneous recording is not supported when using MP4 (35 Mbps), AVCHD Progressive (28 Mbps), Baby Mode, or Cinema-Look Filters.
