Sony NEX-6 usage tips:How to Put AVCHD files from Sony NEX-6 to iMovie with the least loss of original video quality?

Sony NEX-6 comes with a lens kit as well (16mm to 50mm). This looks set to be an entry level DSLR shooter with a 16.1-megapixel sensor, sporting built-in Wi-Fi connectivity to deliver optimal sharing of images compatible devices. If you thought that the NEX-7’s 24MP APS-C sensor was too huge and it produced too much noise, apparently that is an issue that will be addressed with the NEX-6. It is expected to offer better noise control and will come with a 16MP APS-C sensor which is apparently different from the one in the NEX-C3 and the NEX-5R.

We love customizing movies, editing movies is necessary. The Sony NEX-6 users will be glad to find that they can record 1080 60p/60i/24p AVCHD and can connect the camera to a HDTV via a HDMI cable for playback. But almost at the same time, they will be disappointed with the "incompatible format" errors between Sony NEX-6 AVCHD and iMovie.

For transferring 60p MTS/M2TS files from Sony NEX-6 to iMovie, and get the best video and audio settings (to get the best quality as you need), the best method is to convert AVCHD to AIC MOV, which is the friendly video format with Mac and iMovie.
