Panasonic Camcorder NV-DS33

The camera works fine, but I recently purchased an iMac PC. The included program iMovie does not seem to be compatible with my NV-DS33. When I input from camera to PC, the movie gets broken up into 4 second clips. The problem is intermittant also, (sometimes it's OK & sometimes it's not). I have tried with a later model of Panasonic Camcorder, & that works OK. I have tried changing every setting I can think of on the Camera without success. Can you help

SOURCE: downloading video files from Hitachi camcorder hard drive to imac

The best way is to download a file converter and convert the files from the Hitachi hard drive to MOV format. I used an AVS converter to do this.

How to convert .MOD file to mpg, avi, wmv,mp4,flv,mov,mkv and other common video formats?


if you got a JVC camcorder, or Panasonic camcorder or Canon MOD camcorder,you would have problably encountered such issue--- what to do with the MOD/TOD files? And you want to convert the recorded .MOD file type to mpeg, avi, mkv, flv, mp4, wmv or whatever more common, so that you can put them on Youtube, Myspace, Yahoo video, Metacafe? the problem is most major video editing suites seem to unwillingly accept the MOD/TOD format.

Someone successfully made it simply by changing the extension from .mod to mpg, but for most people, they just failed only to find there is no audio after the extension is changed, or the changed one doesn’t allow you to import these files into Windows movie maker, not to mention upload some video to Youtube.com or Facebook. People use different operation system, windows xp, Vista or else. No one wants to say they just want to enjoy the .mod files on camcorder

Stop wasting your time and getting pissed off. There is a very simple program that convert .mod NOT ONLY to mpg but many others like avi, mkv, flv, mp4, wmv, rm, rmvd, mov, dv, mg2 and swf. MOD converter is the one shoot all the trouble. This excellent mod conversion tool is not just a converter but also a video editing tool.

SOURCE: HF10 camcorder cannot read some .mts files

My knowledge in video editing is limited, but here's what I could dig up.

m2ts is also referred to as AVCHD, (MPEG4) a high-def Interlaced format which most computers cant render properly since most computers render in progressive format. You have to convert it to MPEG2, AVI, WMV, MOV or other movie file types in Progressive mode, a process known as "Deinterlacing" in order to edit it. Depending on how big the file is and how fast your computer is this could take several hours. Also, you cant view AVCHD files on normal televisions, you need a high-def TV.

If you want to edit high-def videos with post-effects and music etc, for dvd or blue-ray, you'll need a more powerful computer. The "recommended" minimum is a 64bit dual core processor, windows vista 64 bit, a seperate 500Gb or bigger hard drive and at minimum, 3-4Gbs of RAM with a high-def TV monitor. (1080i) Rendering High-Def videos is process heavy and can take up to 12+ hours to render a single 30-60 minute video with post-fx like music, logo's etc. The reason you need a 64bit processor and 64bit windows is because regular XP and Vista wont recognize more than 3Gb of RAM.

You could get by with a 32bit dual core processor and 2 gigs of RAM on windows XP, it's just going to be slower. You will still probably need a high def monitor if your going to edit in high-def mode.

High-def is new technology to mainstream consumers. Supporting technology hasnt caught up yet including most software--however most of what I read stated that Sony Vegas Platinum can do this pretty well.

Your camera is capeable of recording in progressive mode. You'll have to read the manual on how to do this. This will record it in standard mode which is not high-def. (For future reference)

To sum it all up, the camera's technology is more advanced than most PCs. I downloaded AVS Video Converter and converted the AVCHD, (MPEG4) a high-def Interlaced format to HD Video 720p: WMV9, 7000 kbps....... on the drop down screen of the AVS program. I now can view my videos in Progressive Standard mode with NO choppy play back or problems. Please note that 720p is a non digital standard Television view.

Remember M2ts files need to be converted to Progressive non HD files so your computer can read them. That will stop the choppy skips.

Hope this helps.

Hello, could you advice where I could purchase Panasonic NV-GS150 DV Camera MAC OSX 10.5 Support? I cannot connect my Panasonic NV-GS150 DV camera with my MacBook Pro. Thanks a lot for your help!...


Panasonic usually includes the Mac software program "Imagemixer 3" that imports the videos/photos you have on your camera. If the software isn't included with your camera, try Googling around for the program and it should come right up! I hope this helps. - Omn1cide

Panasonic NV GS25GN How to download from camera's tape to a new iMac OSX? Do I need special drivers? My iMac has a firewire 800 connector (not a 400).


I expect that Firewire 800 is backwards compatible with 400. You just need a cable with the appropriate connectors on each end. The Mac surely comes with the drivers already installed.

How it works with my mini-DV recorder (on a PC) is that when I fire up the video editing software, it sees the camera as a source and can control it from the computer to rewind and download. The book says use the mains power adapter to make sure the camera stays powered.

I have a Panasonic NV-DS33 camera. How can I link


You should have a serial cable that cam with the unit to plug into USB. It will reconize the device and open a separate window which you will need to find your device(camera) and open the folder and you have all of your photos.

Bad quality at capturing from nv gs15 with imovie


You can try VideoStudio version 9, I use this for all my video capture and the quality is perfect but you have to have a huge capacity hard disc if you want a very exceptional video quality. By the way, my sister gave me a camera like yours just last month but she lost the CD, just want to have a favor.... if you could send me a full copy of the CD for the NV GS 15. my email address is brielm99@yahoo.com. Thanks in advance.

HELP ME FIGURE OUT HOW TO DOWNLOAD VIDEO TO MAC...


I use a DV camera that is not on Apple's "compatibility" list. (It should REALLY be noted that Apple sells camcorders in it's on-line store that aren't listed as compatible!) Depending on which software package you are using, including version, results may vary. I too had a fairly confusing frustration the first time out, but here's Jeffe's notes: FireWire! (USB is not for video). Start with iMovie: (FinalCut is higher-end, and thus is more picky about what it will take.) launch the application, then plug in the powered-on camera set to it's "play" (VCR etc.) setting (as opposed to camera setting.) If iMovie STILL does not see the camera, then I'd start to worry about compatibility, and contact an Apple SPECIFIC retailer (not a chain, like CompUSA etc.) for help. BTW: Nice Camera! Let me know if it works out. I was contemplating Panasonic for my next camera.
