Import/Convert Sony NEX-5N AVCHD MTS/M2TS to Premiere Pro CS5.5 for editing on Mac OS X

The NEX-5N uses the same principle of having a DSLR sensor in a relatively compact body, with interchangeable lenses. Although the NEX-5N looks very much like the NEX-5 on the surface, a closer look reveals important changes.First, the sensor has been bumped to 16.1 Megapixels (from 14.2). Secondly, the ISO range has been increased to 3200 from 1600. This is great for low-light situation, even if some amount of noise will be added to the photo. While the NEX-5 did have an optional optical viewfinder, the NEX-5N has an optional electronic viewfinder, based on a 1024×768 OLED display.
