We have a serious problem when we import from a XDCAM camera with Mac Book Pro (MacOs 10.6.7; it's a 2010 machine). When import, there are some audio drops along the clip, and repeat in different moment and different audio track.
When we used PDW-U1 or PDW-R1 the problem disappear at all. The XDCAM TRANSFER version is 2.12.0, and we tested several models of XDCAM camera; and we had the same result.
Our ENG's must import from the camera to MacBook Pro and edit the news in Final Cut; therefore they can't carry a PDW-U1 all the time.
It's seems to be a problem of the camera VCR mode; and Sony Spain is looking for solution. I want to know if someone have any idea about this kind of problem.
