Transfer JVC GC-PX100 AVCHD 1080p videos to FCP X for editing


    The JVC GC-PX100 worked its way through our labs this past fall, with a funky new form factor, great HD video quality, and superb low light performance. JVC has updated its flagship by reining in the design while improving on many of the control aspects that we found frustrating about the PX10.

    The PX100 offers users the ability to record 1080/60p AVCHD 2.0-compliant video at 36Mbps, but is also capable of recording in MPEG-4, .MOV, and at speeds of up to 600 frames per second. In short, you’ll probably have the codec you need for any workflow or intended use. The speed features seem to be where JVC is placing the most of their efforts, as their PX100 displays at CES 2013 were designed to show the usefulness of the camera for examining sports performance in particular.

    Reviews about the camcorder:
    The good:
    New form factor drastically improves handling
    High speed recording is simple and useful
    Smart controls coupled with useful accessories
    The bad:
    Some small design quirks are frustrating
