Sony NEX-FS700 pro-grade 4k-capable E-mount camcorder has all the features of the FS100 but with some big improvements including a 3G-SDI output, ND filters and high-speed recording options. The Sony NEX-FS700U can shoot Full HD 1920 x1080p video as high-quality AVCHD files for you. However, with the 1080/50p, 1080/60p video recording AVCHD file, you may meet some troubles when you import them to Avid Media Composer 6.5 for editing.
I shot footage using the Sony NEX-FS700. When I import the footage into Avid, I found the Media Composer 6.5 cannot handle the AVCHD files well, and some the footage looks washed out and the preview is loggy. Is there anyway to solve the problem? Thanks!
