New Camera: Canon Vixia HF M52

In anticipation of my trip to Asia, I bought a HD camera. I was torn between the Canon Vixia HF M500 and Canon Vixia HF R400, the difference being lens size and storage capability. The R400 can take videos in true 1080p while the M500 can only take 1080i. However, the M500 line has a larger lens so it performs better at night, giving you more versatility in filming overall.

Ultimately, I decided to go with the M500 because I didn't think I would really appreciate the difference anyways between 1080p and 1080i.

Asia Trip Expenses So Far

So far, I have paid this much to travel to and from Asia. I am traveling within the months of January and February.

USA --> Japan: 570.20 USD
Japan --> Korea: 68.71 USD
Korea --> Thailand: 512.33 USD
Thailand --> Taiwan: 291.15 USD
Taiwan --> Philippines --> USA: 568.80 USD

Total: 2011.19 USD

The only thing I need to take into account now will be living expenses (hotel, hostel), traveling expenses (bus, train, boat), entertainment (show, movie, club, bar), food, and souvenirs.
