What's the best camcorder?

Episode 1012 (17:04)

Juan from Sherman Oaks, CA
Canon Vixia

Juan is looking at camcorders, and wants to know what one is best. Leo says that camcorders are becoming rather obsolete these days because users tend to record on their smartphone or via a camera like a DSLR or point and shoot. But for long speeches, sermons, etc, a camcorder is a must because it won't time out.

Leo uses the Canon Vixia HFR400 and the Canon Vixia G20 at the Brick House Studios for TWiT.

Next year, Google Glass will be a possible option. It's not ideal quality, yet.
