Great camcorder - editing software scarce

T. J. Sturm, Amazon
16 January 2008
  • Summary: I've had this camera for just under a year and have enjoyed it very much. Like other reviewers have mentioned, finding editing software for the AVCHD format used is a challenge. I use Adobe Premiere CS3 for editing but have to first convert any footage using Nero or other software.

Crystal Clear

B. Wong, Amazon
