    I own a newish MacBook Pro.
    I want to by an HD camcorder.
    There are all kinds of formats (AVCHD, etc.).
    Is there a list somewhere that says what HD recording formats can be edited on Final Cut Studio 2, which I plan to purchase?
    I'd hate to trust the camera salesman to know for sure.
    Thanks,

    ELEWALD

    Broad Format Support
    With native support for virtually any format, Final Cut Pro lets you edit everything from uncompressed SD to HDV, DVCPRO HD, and uncompressed HD — as well as Panasonic P2 and Sony XDCAM HD tapeless formats. Or use ProRes 422, a new post-production format from Apple that offers uncompressed HD quality at SD file sizes. Mix and match a wide range of formats and even frame rates in the open format Timeline. If you edit film, use the redesigned interface in Cinema Tools 4 to work faster than ever, with customizable lists that let you combine timecode and keycode in a single document.

    No Apple product supports AVCHD currently. I don't think it's a good idea to get any consumer camera that doesn't record to tape so either MiniDV if you want a standard def camera or HDV if you want a high def camera.
