I just purchased a Panasonic HDC-SD9 and I'm looking at the optional Panasonic VW-BN1 which is an external DVD burner that burns an AVCHD DVD of the HD video off the camera's SD card. Here's my question: My father-in-law will be using the camera for a couple of extended trips this year but will not have a computer with him. I'm thinking the best way for him to dump files off my SD cards is to burn them in the VW-BN1 and then I want take the DVDs later and work on them in FCE. Is Handbrake my best option for ripping the HD video off the DVDs for later working in FCE? Is there any worry of image degradation?
