I charge clients 15% more for anything with AVCHD. It's a pain in the $%@@$. Yes, I edit in FCP X and you can edit natively with AVCHD. But good luck trying to relink and do any future revisions with it. Metadata on clip names are horrible. It's virtually impossible to relink dozen of folders with the generic "Clip 1..." cam. I spent more times in figuring out how to relink and update than edit the whole show with it. It is just not a format for serious pro to use. My only easy solution is to export it to an AVC-I 100 MXF with Premiere CC for Mac or Windows format and it's a pleasure to work in FCP X.
