Transferring Footage

It’s easier than you think to get the footage from the Canon XA25 to your computer

Learn More
Its a breeze to transfer your video footage from your hired video camera before you need to return it, all you need to do is connect the camera to your PC or MAC via a USB cable or if you have a card reader you can take the card from the video camera and insert it directly into your computer and you can copy all the footage over

An important point to bear in mind is ensure you copy everything over from thetop level of folders, for example dont just copy the actual video clips over, if you do not copy all the files over you can run into trouble when trying to play back or import the footage, the other files on the card will be the data files that your computer will need to access to make sense of the clips without this oimportant information you will be left with video that you may be unable to play

So be safe copy everything from the top folders across to your computer and you will be safe to return the video camera knowing you have everything you need to complete your video edit
