I copy BPAV to hard drive first and then rewrap.
I'd never rewrap without backing up BPAV first.
Rewrap from hard drive seems to be about 6.5x so importing a MOV would be faster.
Of course you're right about starting with MOV as opposed to a generic format.
The JVC camera does record to a generic format which JVC doesn't mention. My guess is that it's the same BPAV/MP4 that the EX uses since it's the same codec.

It seems JVC Korea has a pic of the JVC HM700 (which looks like the JVC 250) which I've posted elsewhere on DVInfo. Apparently JVC USA does not want the pic posted though for whatever reason.

If you do choose .mov files you could end up with an issue if you need to then pass on your project to a PC user as PC's cannot read mpeg in a .mov wrapper.
