In this article, we will mainly introduce particular model of AVCHD camcorders, then discuss on how to backup their recording footage by converting AVCHD M2TS file to popular video formats on PC/Mac. Since there are so many models of Canon Camera, here we just take an example of converting Canon Vixia HF S200 to MP4, AVI, etc.
Though they're an excellent trio of camcorders, Canon Vixia HF S21, HF S20, and HF S200 are significantly more expensive than their respective competitors, especially since the S20 and S200 lack electronic viewfinders. If you can forgo some of the subtleties of the manual controls, you can probably get what you need with a cheaper camcorder.
Apart from JVC, majority of consumer camcorders in currunt market use AVCHD format. And the file extension of AVCHD format is .m2ts / .mts. Though Picture Motion Browser, which is an M2TS player application provided with Sony AVCHD camcorders, supports playback AVCHD M2TS natively, you still need to consider a lot to make them playable smoothly. Since you know even rewind Canon Vixia HF S200 M2TS video on a moderate Mac computer, it will cause over-heat of that machine. Let alone these troubles like M2TS codec out-of-date, M2TS Player crash, or the missing of original Canon Vixia HF S200 M2TS footages.
Accordingly, you need to make digital backup of your Canon Vixia HF S200 M2TS shootings. And the straight forward method is converting M2TS to more popular and computer friend formats, like M2TS to MP4, AVI, MOV, etc.
Though I really liked Canon's 2009 prosumer Vixia HF S1x series, I couldn't fully endorse the HF S10/S11 because it lacked an electronic viewfinder, a feature that higher-end users appreciate. Camcorders with EVFs are easier to hold stably while recording video, and EVFs tend to be easier to see with than an LCD in bright sunlight. I'm quite happy to hear that Canon opted to put an EVF on its highest-end model, the Vixia HF S21, for 2010.
