Convert Sony NEX EA50UH footage for FCP X/7/6
Sony NEX EA50UH Review
I've had Sony NEX EA50UH for about two Months and am astounded by the image quality of the system. The HD camcorder shoots stills at up to 16Mp, and AVCHD video at up to 28 Mbps, which at that level is Full HD video that can be slowed down to 24 fps in post production for a 2.5x in-camera slow-motion effect. The quality of this camera is very close to that of my 5D mark II, which has some of the best video quality available in any 1080p format. Another good feature is the ability to record to a SD card and to a hard drive. I would highly recommend NEX EA50UH. You get allot of camera for the price.
