I just had a not so good experience editing from a hard drive recording camera. It was a Sony model but can’t remember the exact one and for some reason the geniuses who came up with it decided to have the camera record in .mpg format which no normal editing program (Adobe Premiere, Sony Vegas or Avid) can read. Thereby I had to convert the files first which caused a loss in quality (I suppose I could have avoided that if I had an enormous hard drive) but even if there was none of that, the converting step is still very annoying. Why can’t they have the camera record into a format that editing programs can read?
