Wow, can you understand why I love it so much now? But one thing that frustrates me a little bit is the XAVC format recorded in Sony PMW-F5. Newly developed by Sony, this format is amazing but it is too amazing for the Mac media player to play. It is not a favorable format to common Mac media players including QuickTime, iTunes etc. Luckily, I got an effective way to fix the problem. The effective way is to convert XAVC videos on Mac.

Isn’t it a live diary? Want to give up your paper diary and try the talking camcorder?


Well, if you are still looking for a professional camcorder, why not consider Sony PMW-F55 CineAlta 4K Digital Cinema Camera?
