Converting/Ingesting Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX30V 1080/60p AVCHD video recording to iMovie Editing Mac

Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX30V, its larger size not only makes room for the 20x zoom lens, but also for things like the bright 3-inch ultrahigh-resolution LCD, making it easy to see and read in daylight (though in direct sun you'll want to crank the brightness). There's a nice rubberized grip on the front and the thumb rest on the back has the same texture. You'll find a programmable Custom button on top that can be used for fast access to exposure compensation, ISO, white balance, metering, and Smile Shutter, Sony's smile-activated shutter release.

Like all of Sony's higher-end cameras, the Cyber-shot DSC-HX30V has a lot of shooting options that take advantage of its fast Exmor R sensors and Bionz image processors.
