Canon M500

Dec 9, 2012 11:02 AM

We have the latest version of Premiere Elements 11. We are going to purchase a new HD camcorder. We are considering a Canon M500. How compatible is this camcorder with Premiere Elements?

    What is the CODEC that camera uses to create video?

    The M500 is a low-end HD camcorder that saves its video to an SD. Canon claims its video is AVC compatible MP4s, which should work in Premiere Elements 11, assuming you've got an adequately powered computer. (A quad core or i7 processor with 4 gigs of RAM would be best.)

    This Canon his high-def, so it should be a significant improvement over your VHS -- like about 16 times the resolution!

     

    But ask your dealer if you can take it for a test drive first. I think you'll be pleased. (Though not as much as if you purchased a standard AVCHD camcorder, like the Canon Vixia HF series [as opposed to the HF M series].)

     

    EDIT

    Did a bit more research. The HF M series are now their mid-range AVCHD series. It should be a great camcorder for editing with in Premiere Elements!

    >Where do I find that information?

     

    I would go to the Canon site and find the specifications page for that camera
