video is OK but I took vacation videos in HD-SP only to find out they were unreadable in Final Cut Pro and iMovie

Summary: There is no warning from either Sony or Apple, although Apple did not print the manual for the camcorder, that reveals clips taken in Sony's HD-SP 1920x1080p 60i codex is not recognized by the movie apps on a Mac. Several visits to forums and Sony support were frustrating.
Summary: Looks like the life of this item is over, does not work any more... Did not used for few months, then we tried to use it after some time and came to know that it is not working any more... god knows why
