Sony HDR-AX2000 Review-Edit AX2000 AVCHD MTS files, Join MTS files

Posted by admin | Comments are off for this article

Sony’s HDR-AX2000 makes for an impressive prosumer-level AVCHD camcorder. While not as decked out as the HXR-NX5U (its NXCAM pro counterpart), it’s a clear step up from its HDV predecessor, the HDR-FX1000. The camera’s ability to capture HD and SD video in AVCHD and MPEG-2 formats–and save it to solid state media–is only one of the traits distinguishing it from its tape-based forebearer. Full 1920 x 1080 HD video–which can be recorded at 60i, 30p and 24p–is another. The footage is saved to either Memory Stick PRO Duo or SD/SDHC/SDXC cards, then easily downloaded to computer for editing via USB 2.0 interface.
