Currently have a Panasonic camcorder that outputs the .MOD wrapper. Getting a bit tired of the convoluted work flow of having to convert these files using a codec Premiere likes.
Anyone have some recommended hard disc based camcorders under $400 that use codecs that will easily import into Premiere CS5? Note: this is for my home/personal stuff (already have a great P2 based camera for my pro stuff that works great!).
Appreciate any advice you can provide.
I have two Panasonic hdc-sd60 (SD card, not Hard disk) and I am satisfied with it.
SD would be fine, too. Does it natively import or do you have to do any conversion? Conversion is the painful part of the process I am trying to avoid.
Is an AVCHD and the files are natively imported (.mts).
You can also edit from the SD without copying the files to the computer hard disk.
