Well, I am trying to choose between these two cameras. I am also considering the Sony 18-105/ F4 g lens and the Oly Zuiko 12-40/ F2.8 lens respectively. My question is in regard to video processing: which is better/ easier to process using a Mac. I read this review, which says.. http://www.eoshd.com/content/12822/best-small-camera-108060p-panasonic-gx7-a6000-review "Both the GX7 and A6000 shoot 1080p in AVCHD format which I dislike with a passion I usually reserve for forum trolls! I just dont like having to navigate 80 subfolders to get to individual clips or having to suffer Apples appallingly buggy support for the format in Mac OSX with Quicktime gamma shifts and all sorts. Apples contempt for the format is visible when you try clicking an AVCHD folder to look at the contents in Quicktime, and the folder is empty. It hangs and you get an error message saying operation cannot be completed. For whatever reason Apple just arent hot on AVCHD. Thankfully I found that the 1080/60p MP4 option in the GX7 has identical quality to the AVCHD mode and the same bitrate of 28Mbit/s. These clips are stored like MOV files on the GH4 in the stills folder and you can get at them easily for editing. However 24p mode is only in AVCHD and at this frame rate theres less compression due to a greater bitrate per frame. 28Mbit/s for 60 frames is nearly double the compression over 24Mbit/s for 24 frames. However the GX7′s codec does a superb job of avoiding any really noticeable breakup in the image. The same cannot be said for the codec in the A6000, which is a bit of an Achilles heel really. Yes the A6000 does have an MP4 mode but with a drop in quality to 1440x1080p at just 12Mbit/s. The Sony AVCHD codec breaks up more easily on the A6000 and it doesnt grade nearly as well as the GX7′s codec at either 24p or 60p." I am a novice and have not done any video processing what so ever. Should this review matter to me? or are the comments more applicable for pros? I am leaning toward the Sony mainly because of the price, but I simply do not want to be buying into a camera system that is does not work well with my Mac. My main use is walk around shooting of video and stills, mostly of my kids and possibly some sports events as they get a little older. Thanks for your advise.
