final cut express and hmc 150
on Apr 3, 2009 at 5:31:03 pm

I am about to buy the Panasonic ag hmc 150. has anyone had success editing AVCHD clips from this camera on final cut express? I do not need all the capabilities of FCP and can not afford it anyway. My mac book pro has 512 MB of Ram. Can I use it? I can possibly get hold of a macbook air with 2G of ram.

FCE does not support 24p so you'd be stuck with the 60i modes. To fully use the 150 you would need Final Cut Pro.

according to apple the RAM requirements are 2G, but 4G for uncompressed. My computer has 2G. Will I be able to upload, edit and offload with the Macbook Air configured as such? Will a superdrive be able to burn the work on to a DVD to play on a non HD player? Thanks for confirming my suspicions about FCE.

There is no 'uncompressed' with the 150- it is compressed in the camera so you would gain absolutely nothing by transcoding AVCHD to uncompressed.

Is FCP studio2 (FCP 6) enough to work with the HMC 150, or do I need an update from there?
Also can you export a clip as a Jpeg for say a publicity shot?

6.04 is required- that's a free update from 6.0. Sure you can export a still- it's 1920x1080 though- not exactly high res for stills.
