If you aren’t a professional photographer, but you really love recording every wonderful moment in the life. Sony NEX-F3 is a good choice for you. It’s price is resonable, just $598. Compared to the previous generation C3, F3 has significantly strengthened its video recording capabilities, added 1080/60i video recording and two-channel microphone.
Sony NEX-F3 shoots videos in MPEG-4 or AVCHD format, the Maximum up to 1080/60i. In most cases, we need to edit the video files that recorded by Sony NEX-F3. For mac users, Final Cut Pro is the most common. But, AVCHD format isn’t compatibled well with FCP, instead, FCP prefer Apple ProRes codec for editing. Both FCP 6/7 and FCP X. Though some FCP promise supporting AVCHD videos, it still need to take long time for rendering.
