So I bought a used Canon Xixia HFS 200. Its small and compact, and fits in with my hiking mode, and the absence of a tripod. Quite quickly, here's what I don't like about it: It has no viewfinder, so you are still stuck with a screen in broad daylight. The screen is a touch screen, and I think the inventor of touch screens should be shot. The next model up takes a converter, which would convert the Zoom to 500 mm, which I would like also. I could move up, and the size would be the same which I like. But I'll stick with this for now and practice.
Notice the sharpness of these photos. You won't get it in a video camera, because of the size of the sensors. White Admiral opposite. And with a video, butterflies are hard to photograph, because they fly so randomly. I'll talk about the software later somewhat extensively because its critical..
