The 4K camcorder Sony NEX-FS700(U) is very popular for us, it can capture full 1080p video in a range of frame rates up to 60p (50p for PAL), have you guiys got the cam? If so, you may meet the problem with the 1080p 60p MTS with FCP X. Because I know many users are asking that how to smoothly get the Sony FS700 footaes to FCP X. It is said FCP X 10.0.4 or above can recongnise the video from S700 sometimes, but many users still meet the incompatibl troubles.
Guys, do you know how to easily solve the question? Upgrade? I thought it was a good way, but I failed. And I had to go to Google for searching.
