Tricks for Import/Edit Pasasonic TM700/TM900 AVCHD 50p/60p MTS in iMovie smoothly
Panasonic HDC-TM700 is a camcorder introduced in early 2010 that is able to shoot 1080p 50/60P videos in AVCHD format. Generally the TM700 is proposed with 1080/50p (Full HD 1920x1080 with 50 progressive recording) in Europe, and 1080/60p (full HD 1920x1080 with 60 progressive recording) in America. As the successor to the lauded HDC-TM700, Panasonic HDC-TM900 offers the same fantastic video performance as its predecessor, particularly with its widely-praised 1080/60p mode.
