We held a Family Reunion Party two weeks ago and I shot many videos with my Canon Legria HF M41 camcorders. Now, I want to transfer the recorded video files to my iPad for playing freely. Who can tell me how to do it with the HD quality preserved, please?
This is one of the Frequently Asked Questions we come across from time to time. Actually, except for Canon Legria, there are many other AVCHD HD camcorders such as Sony HDR, Panasonic HDC series, all of which shoot amazing MTS HD-files (1080i or 720p).
