"I just bought the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX80 camera, I recorded many clips during the weekend, has anybody else had issues with importing Sony WX80 1080/60i AVCHD video files into FCP 6/7? The codec is MPEG4. This is the first time I've ever had crashing problems with MPEG4, please help."

This is a question asked by a Sony user, the answer to this question is ProRes 422 will eventually prevail, the best converted format is ProRes. The WX80 can shoot 1080/60i AVCHD movies, video footage is compressed using the B-frame compression section of the MPEG4 standard, which tries to optimize the capture of motion without hugely inflating the file sizes. It also has manually configurable volume control, including a line-level audio option.
