  • Problems using the MFX codec in the Canon XF100

    I'm in the market for the canon XF100 camera. However I am hearing horror stories from professionals that have tried to open the MXF codec these cameras use and they have huge problems working with this filetype in video editors. Apparently it causes their computers to continually crash and uses up all of their ram leaving their computers non-functioning. Is this something you have heard about? I'm talking in pro video programs such as adobe premiere CS5 as well as Avid that these problems occur. Thannx for any info from anyone!!
