Hello there. We're a Media and Film department in a UK school, and, having just upgraded to Premiere Pro CS6 from Final Cut Express, we are experiencing difficulties importing footage from our Canon HF100 cameras. We are using OSX 10.8.5. If there is a specific preset that needs to be used, or if the answer is elsewhere on these forums, we'd really appreciate a pointer!
We can work around this using iSkySoft, but it would obviously be more convenient to be able to import directly from the cameras.
It would also be useful to know which cameras other folk are using, for when we need to replace our hardware.
