Sony Handycam HDR-TG3E is one of the smallest HD cameras with weight 240g. You could like its handy face detection and the full HD videos recording with 1920 x 1080, even though it was a little bit expensive at that time. It is slightly uncomfortable to hold with the sharp-cut edges after long-time holding. The CMOS sensor provides vivid images for you.
It is the winner of Reevoo Customer Choice Awards 2009. It can record and replay standard definition movies using MPEG-2 and the recorded videos come out as .mpg files. MPEG-2 is the compression system used by standard DVD. For HD videos, it uses an MPEG-4-based AVCHD compression system to write full-specification, 1920 x 1080i high-definition video clips to Sony's proprietary Memory Stick Pro Duo memory cards. With HD video recording, a 4GB card is not quite a big space now. With the recorded AVCHD 1920x1080i videos, you may want to edit them in Final Cut Pro, but your FCP version may not recognize the HD videos you recorded.
Final Cut Pro was said to support AVCHD .mts files, but it could let you disappointed sometimes. Aunsoft MTS to FCP converter is a really useful program for helping you convert MTS files to .mov videos for editing on FCP. It works wonderfully for the Sony HDR-TG3 HD videos. Please just use the USB extension cable to connect the HDR TG3 to PC, transfer the videos to Mac hard drive, and load the videos to the MTS to FCP converter, choose Common Video > MOV - QuickTime(*.mov) as output format for conversion. You can then load the videos to Final Cut Pro without problem.
1. Sony HDR-TG3E is available in Europe, and the same module in other countries is Sony HDR-TG1. The Aunsoft MTS/M2TS Converter for Mac, working as MTS to FCP converter, deinterlaces the .mts videos and removes interlacing artifacts with great quality.
2. If you want to make the Sony HDR-TG3E (TG1) mts videos editable on Windows software like Adobe Premiere, Avid Editing Component, Pinnacle, you may use the windows version of Aunsoft MTS/M2TS Converter.
