Panasonic HDC-MDH1 AVCHD

I am planning on purchasing two Panasonic HDC-MDH1 cameras for weddings and events. These cameras record in AVCHD ; MPEG4-AVC/H.264 (AVCHD standard compliant) as the supplier says. Is this compatible with Adobe Premiere?

 

I have read some threads that said that it is not really supported by Premiere and can use some advice.

 

Thank you.

 

Jonah

    Are you buying brick&mortar or mail order?

     

    If from a real store, take your own SD memory card and do some test filming and then load the video into your computer and test

     

    That is, of course, if that camera uses an SD memory card and the store will let you do your own testing

    Tough to say.  Not all cameras suffer from the AVCHD bug.  My own Panasonic GH2 does not.  I've heard that some other Panasonic models do not either.  But then at least one person has a Panasonic model that does seem to have the issue.

    I have Paasonics ag 160 and 130 and they have that issue, or at least seem to.  If I were buying a new camera, and thinking of Premiere as the editing software, I would wait until the new version comes out and see what they have done.

    It does look like the issue has been resolved in the new version of Premiere Pro, due out soon (we hope).  So I'd say get the camera you prefer.  If you do upgrade or are a Creative Cloud subscriber, the issue with AVCHD should be short lived.
