I've been shooting on cameras that utilize the new AVCHD format for a couple of years now. Because I've always downloaded footage directly into Final Cut Pro on a Mac, things have been seamless. Recent video-editing only needs presented me with the task of converting raw .MTS file from someone else's camera, without the benefit of the additional source files and folders (a different story for a different day). My final solution, was not to pay the 35-plus dollars for conversion software online (which top 20 Google returns would have you believe), but instead, found a piece of shareware called HandBrake. Goes to show you don't always have to pay the man. http://download.cnet.com/HandBrake/3000-2140_4-43951.html

Signed on to produce some videos for custom bike frame manufacturer - Zinn Cycles this week. Sooo stoked! Check out their site - and soon - you'll be able to check out some more of my handywork. Great company, Lennard seems like a great guy - and I'm looking forward to capturing his story.
