    I am using Hardy Heron 8.04 Ubuntu Linux, and would like to purchase this
    camera. What software might I be able to use on my OS? I don’t know how
    much Windows software I can emulate, so Linux-based suggestions are nicer.
    Thanks! πŸ™‚

    This is beyond me. I’ve never used After Effects.

    Can you explain me one very important thing, namely why I don’t will be
    happy using video clips (from the cam) for web ? (online) ??? because I
    really not understand your statement, after all I can convert between
    different video format, and I can choose the one, which will be best for me
    ? where is the problem ? please explain me – but please, no one word
    response πŸ™‚ I please for more ….

    Can you pause during a recording then start recording again on the same
    video? To do certain movie magic tricks like disappearing and appearing.

    This Camera has a Mini HDMI conector besides the component option I wonder
    Why you say it doesnΒ΄t. maybe you are confused because the cable is not
    included. but you can get one at BestBuy or circuit city

    Thank you for this very informative review. It seems like all bad news for
    PC users, but it’s a very helpful review.

    hmmm i want to get this camera but would want to do some major editing
    along with it i do have sony vegas so that wouldn’t be a problem, but it
    seems that AVCHD doesn’t work with adobe products (i would also be using
    adobe after effects 7.0) i may have to get a different camera now…which
    disappoints me

    First off, great review, I thought this was really helpful πŸ™‚ In the
    section where you were talking about software compatability though, you
    didn’t mention more professional softwares such as Adobe After Effects.
    Would it be compatible with that? And if not, is there any way I could
    convert the AVCHD format into an AVI compressed with a Lagarith Lossless
    codec? I have a TB of HD space specifically for editing so space isn’t an
    issue for me. Just wondering before I purchase this…

    sony vegas is not hard and complacated to use, thats the second clip ive
    saw that you have said that, anyone who has ever used a video editing
    package of any sort could use it no problem, if fact my friends 11 year old
    son uses it all the time

    AVCHD can only be handled with GPGPU technology.

    I appreciate the review… but I’m kinda surprised you haven’t heard of
    Vimeo, which allows you to upload HD content to the web.
