Full HD Video-The latest mid-range and high end HD camcorders now provide FULL HD at 1920×1080 pixel resolution. This is currently the highest HD resolution available on consumer camcorders and is the highest resolution that the latest High Definition TVs can show. Full HD is also known as 1080p. This resolution is the equivalent of 2 megapixels.Older 1080i camcorders (which used interlaced video) only provided 1 megapixel of detail. Canon VIXIA HF G20 Full HD Camcorder shoots 1920 x 1080 Full HD video at 60i, in native 24p and 30p.
As a Mac and Avid Media Composer user, I like to edit 1080p AVCHD video with Avid MC. Although We understand that Avid MC can import AVCHD – but apparently not all flavors work well.
