The more I use the Sony NEX-EA50EH, the more I like it. The NEX-EA50EH with Super35 sensor. Marketed as a more affordable than the company’s previous interchangeable lens offerings the new camera has some interesting advantages for the news shooter.The lens system is Sony’s own E-mount which is used on all NEX cameras including the FS100 and FS700. There is a growing range of compatible lenses as well as adapters to mount Sony Alpha lenses and also other brands such as Canon EOS, Nikon, FD, Leica or PL mounts.
It is also a ‘world camera’ from the outset with both PAL and NTSC frame rates up to 60P. The 50 and 60P modes should allow for some nice slow motion too.The camera records internally using AVCHD 2.0 which should mean it has bitrates around the 28Mb/s mark.

I’ve been importing some 24fps AVCHD footage into FCP 7 with no problem using the prescribed method (copying the entire contents of a card and then selecting “import from camera”), but when I do the same thing with Sony NEX-EA50EH 60fps AVCHD footage, I get error messages. So how to solve this kind of problem. Here I recommend the best way to make Sony NEX-EA50EH 1080p AVCHD footages editable in FCP 7 easily.
FCP 7/X best supported video format is Apple ProRes 422 codec MOV format, so the best method to solve Sony EA50EH importing and codec problem is to convert Sony EA50EH 1080P AVCHD footage to ProRes for editing in Final Cut Pro, you can follow the steps below to transcode Sony EA50EH files to FCP for editing.
Step 1: Download Brorsoft AVCHD to FCP Converter for Mac , run it, and then load your .mts or .m2ts files to it to converting.
1. If you want, you can merge several AVCHD clips by ticking “Merge into one” box.
2. Pls do not imput so many cilps to the software one time in that the software needs more space to run while converting. If the imputed file is 1GB, then memory space should be up to 40GB.
Step 2: Click “Format” bar to choose the output format. Click and choose “Final Cut Pro-Apple ProRes 422(*.mov)” as the best output format for FCP.
Tip: FCP 6 or ealier version only can support ProRes 422 or ProRes 422(HQ). FCP 7 or above can support Pro Res 422(LT), Pro Res 444Pro and Res 422(Proxy).
Step 3: Tap “settings” icon to customize the output parameters, adjust the resolution, bitrate as you want. Set video size as 1920*1080.
Tip: Sony NEX-EA50EH is a professional camcorder that must have two version, NTSC or PAL. For NTSC users, frame rate 30fps is the best choice for them, while for PAL users 25fps is the best for them.
Step 4: Click convert button and start to convert Sony EA50EH AVCHD to FCP compatible ProRes .mov on Mac OS X.
