High Def MP4 Camcorders for easy uploading and filming football, basketball, soccer, hockey, lacrosse, volleyball, and any other sport

HF_M52_main_USWA_blackThis post will cover high def MP4 camcorders for easy uploading and filming football, basketball, soccer, hockey, lacrosse, volleyball, and any other sport. 2013 has brought some great new camcorder models with a key feature, the ability to shoot to HD MP4 files. This is important because AVCHD is becoming unnecessary, it’s not widely playable on all computers/devices, and produces very large file sizes. AVCHD files are almost always converted to MP4 files so they can be used or uploaded. This is a lengthy added step that is now removed with the evolution of prosumer camcorders shooting in MP4. All of the current models out or coming out have 2 main shooting modes…AVCHD or MP4. Here is a list of models to checkout:

Sony has finally added an MP4 shooting mode, but I would avoid the added expense of the built in projectors.
