Sony HDD-SR1

Hi all,

I got mine last weekend. My over all satisfaction is good. My disappointment is Sony doesn't support Mac OSX. For now I'm just hang in there and have some faith that Apple will support this AVCHD format.

Another disappointment is: record in MP2 format is pretty bad with motion. it's like blurry horizontal lines with moving subjects

just a little sharing... :-D

That is due to a unproperly de-interlaced file, try a de-interlacing filter to make it look better.

So what is the HDD's File Format? NTFS? FAT32?

Jack,

deinterlacing filer?, is that an option I should look for on the camcorder? or is it really a lens filter. Sorry, I'm a newbie on this.

I can transfer files to my Mac ok. they are a bunch of .MTS files. But no way I can play back on Mac yet. This has nothing todo with NTFS or FAT or what ever.

thanks

A de-interlacing filter is something you use in your Non-Linear editor to remove the jagged lines caused by interlacing.

It looks like Apple hasn't yet jumped on the AVCHD decoder bandwagon... Wait a while (possibly until the next final cut version) to see if AVCHD might soon be supported.
