timbo64,

 

Video files from the HF R400 and many other camcorders are very large.  There are often file size restrictions on e-mails, which makes sending a video file very difficult.  Often the file will need to be reduced in size by being recorded at a lower resolution to start with, then compressed or reduced in quality.  Depending on how long the video was, it may still be too large to e-mail even at that point.

 

You can always upload the video to a web service, allowing you to simply share the link with someone via e-mail instead.  There are many available, one of which is our own Canon Image Gateway.  The link will take you to the website.
