Import Sony HDR-CX260V/B AVCHD MTS to iMovie or FCE with AIC MOV codec

Sony HDR-CX260V/B creates stunningly beautiful 1920x1080p Full HD videos, letting you record your memories in exceptional full high definition quality. It is capable of 60p recording and playback via HDMI and compatible HDTV providing stunning clarity and incredibly detailed and smoother playback of your memories.

User reviews:

Pros: It’s really as good as you could hope. Low light is very decent also. There is no light but frankly, footage shot with a tiny light bulb or LED never looks good anyways. Still photo quality is sorta grainy but it’s nice to have. You can also pop in an SD card & record hours and hours more. I would highly recommend getting a 32gb SD card (amazon basics has a nice one) and then you don’t have to connect the camera to your computer, just insert the SD card.

Cons: The HQ video mode is not compatible with the Mac without some hassling. The HQ mode is the default shooting mode and it’s really what you want to be using. It gives you the highest, best frame rate. You have to adjust down to FH or Standard quality to get iMovie or Final Cut to recognize the video.
