Canon XF100 and Final Cut X Importing Tips: Best way for Transcoding XF100 MXF files to Apple ProRes 422(HQ)(*.mov) for FCP X mac editing

"The XF100 can easily make pro videos. A few lights and it can sing with the best. The resolution is excellent, colors can be spectacular. Within the camera is the ability to customize almost every aspect of how the camera records, down to fine tuning each of the RGB channels. So, this camera can easily make great videos. And remember that the XF100 can make two copies of your film as you shoot, safety first. Or you can have the camera span the two CF cards so that you can always be replacing one when it is full - allowing nearly infinite length takes. And you can format a CF card while the other one is recording.Overall, this is an excellent camera for the video journalist -- reliable auto mode for run-and-gun situation while providing all the manual controls for the 'control-freak'."
