5.0 out of 5 stars What a Camcorder, 17 Aug. 2012
By 
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Panasonic X800 Full HD 1920 x 1080p (50p) 3D Ready Camcorder - Black (3MOS Sensor, 23x Intelligent Zoom, SD Card Recording, Leica Dicomar Lens, and Manual Control Ring) 3.0 inch LCD (discontinued by manufacturer) (Camera)
I bought Panasonic HC-X800 wondering how I was going to get the film into iMovie on my iMac. I read it was not compatible. WRONG. In iMovie click on the import from camera button and it import and converts AVCHD files to Quicktime.mov. The HC-X800 also records in iFrame which are mp4 format which is a native format in iMovie. If you have Adobe Premier Pro it recognises AVCHD file format without conversion.

The quality of the video is outstanding. The photo quality is 7 out of 10 which doesn't matter because I bought it to make films. The photo quality is good enough for most applications. The HC-X800 also lets you take photos while filming. This is a really useful feature. A great camcorder and easy to use.

I have an iMac and was looking at this camera as my ideal.
Please advise, if you import into iMovie ( not using I frame) do you import at the full resolution, ie 50p uncompressed?
Thanks
