Does anyone have any experience editing video from the Nikon D7000 in FCP X? I've just purchased this DSLR for my photo work, however I'm interested in its video capability. I understand that the video can't be edited right out of the camera. Any suggestions for transcoding?

One nice benefit of the D7000 is that I can use my vintage Nikkor lenses - metering and focus assist are available for non CPU Nikkor lenses.

You simply optimize the video when you import. That converts it.

All the best,

Tom

That easy, huh? I had visions of arcane settings in Compressor or MPEg Streamclip :) Thanks Tom.

FCP X can also use the D7000 footage straight out of the camera if you wish. I shoot about 90% of my footage with my D7000. I usually only transcode it if I'm mixing it with footage from other cameras or dropping it into Adobe Premiere.

Limited experience so far, but I have had no problem simply importing the mov files without optimizing. Of course the clips have no time code, so they all start at 0.

Thanks for the replies. I will have to run tests.
