It has been a long time since I became a fan of Vimeo. People share their original HD video and the performance of the video is really awesome. I dreamed of uploading and sharing my own HD video every day and last week my dream finally comes true. I decided to bite the bullet and purchase the Panasonic HDC-SD600.


Maybe you will say why not buy Panasonic HDC-TM 700, well, I'm just a fresh graduate and TM700 is too expensive to me ToT. But I think SD600 is also very good, it is built around the same sensors and optics as the TM700 which includes a trio of 1/4in CMOS chips with 3.05-megapixels apiece, plus a Leica Dicomar lens offering a 35mm wide aspect. My SD600 can take full HD 1080/60p which is recorded at 28Mbits/sec as TM700 does, so I think when I upload the video to Vimeo, the performance would be great. TM700 can record 5.1 surround sound, my SD600 only offers stereo sound but I don't care. My only regret is SD600 doesnt contain any flash memory, it relies entirely on SD cards. But think the other side, this makes SD600 much cheaper.


I encountered a problem when I wanted import 1080/60p AVCHD video from SD600 into iMovie, I found that iMovie could not handle this MTS format. BTW, I use Macbook, Mac OS X (10.6.6). I wanted to edit my video before uploading to Vimeo so much. Finally a software called " Aunsoft MTS Converter for Mac" on Mac APP store helped me solve this problem.


Here is an introduce of this software's UI and how I use it to import SD600 AVCHD into iMoive:


gh2 to mov for imovie


I chose H.264 MOV format to output because it has a high quality and smaller size compared to other format, such as AIC,PRORES. After all I would like to upload the video to Youtube and Vimeo and I wannt the best balance between size and performance.


If you have the similar problem with me, try this software and you can get it by searching you App Store easily.
