Whats The Best Recording Quality For The Canon Vixia Hf M50 Indoors?

1) Do not record using the camcorder handheld. Tripod, chair, counter, floor, shelf, book, anything, but not handheld.

2) Use lots of light. The small lenses and imaging chip make it impossible for consumer-grade camcorders to record well indoors or under poor lighting conditions. ADD LIGHT. This may be as simple as using a couple of worklights from the hardware store or as complex as getting a couple of light trees, a dozen PAR56 cans and a dimmer/control system... Whatever. ADD LIGHT. A single 60 watt bulb may be good enough for you to see around a room - but will not be good enough for the camcorder to provide you with non-grainy video.

2a) If video capture is outdoors, capture under bright, sunny, conditions.


3) Learn to use - and use - the camcorder's white balance settings.

4) Learn to use a video editor in your computer - and use it.

5) Your camcorder has a mic jack. Get an external mic or two. Use the manual audio control, too.

Read the camcorder manual: http://gdlp01.c-wss.com/gds/2/0300006942...

Video quality setting: Page 91. Record in highest quality mode for best possible video. AVCHD MXP.

Use lots of Lights.
Also learn how to operate your Camcorder in Manual Mode, if you can go there.

Simple,

It's already recording in the best quality (AVCHD, 1080p). The problem with this camera is typically in the lighting, the more light the better. That being said, find a white sheet of paper and place it where it would get the most amount of light. It has to be all white, so no lined paper, or anything white really.


There should be a button on the top left corner of the touch screen. If not, then scroll through the menu/home button > main functions and find white balance. Switch it from auto white balance to Manuel/custom white balance, and aim the camera at the paper.


Make sure it fills up the whole screen, and try not to zoom because zooming with this camera reduces exposure to the point where white balancing becomes almost impossible, and press the white balance button. This will help and if not feel free to email me. :3
