    help choosing camera for premiere

    zxy321 Level 1

      i want to buy a consumer (flash memory or hard drive based) hd video camera that uses file formats premiere pro cs3 supports natively. i have a canon vixia camera but it uses .mts which cs3 does not support. i have to use sony vegas and i hate sony vegas. i can't find what file formats they use on the manufacturer's websites. i don't have time to transcode all my video so i can use the editing software i like. i also don't have time to shoot four hours of video and wait four hours to capture all of it from a tape camera. i can't afford to upgrade to cs4 either. i guess i am really stuck.

       

      canon has always been my favorite video cameras but i am open to jvc, panasonic, sony, etc.

       

      anyone with suggestions?
