Tip & How-To about Sony Alpha DSLR-A580 Body Only Digital Camera
The Sony PJ30V has more compression options than your average camcorder. Most of its video is recorded using AVCHD compression, which is today's industry standard. The HDR-PJ30V has 32GB of internal flash memory and it can record Full HD video using 60p, 60i, or 24p frame rates. The PJ30V comes with the same version of Picture Motion Browser (PMB) software that shipped with the Sony HDR-CX700V, which we reviewed earlier this year. The new version of the software is nearly identical to previous versions of PMB, except version 5.5 does allow you to import and work with 60p and 24p clips (something that is essential for the HDR-PJ30V). One big downside, we noticed in terms of editing, is that the 60p clips recorded by the PJ30V don't always play nice with mac editing software. Final Cut Pro version 5.0, for example. And Now Final Cut Pro X is available could be Downloaded from the Mac App Store. However Log and Transfer was removed in the X version of Final Cut. So all Pro mts camcorder owners who use Final Cut are looking for HD Camcorder MTS Converter Software.
