Edit Sony DSC-RX100 V 4K AVCHD file in iMovie

Posted by on Thursday, 27 October, 2016

Sony has done it once again: The company responsible for creating the 1″-sensor, fixed-lens camera market has taken it to the next level with its latest pocket powerhouse, the Sony RX100 V. Using it, you can even more capable 4K and high-frame rate video capture. All of that performance isn’t just harnessed for stills, either. The RX100 IV was already an exceptionally capable video shooter for a pocket-friendly camera, providing for both 4K ultra-high definition recording and up to a maximum capture rate of 1,000 frames per second at reduced resolution. Now, the Sony RX100 V follows with improvements on both fronts.

For one thing, when shooting 4K video you have access to the same new hybrid autofocus system used for still imaging. Also, 4K footage is captured with almost the full sensor width, without any line skipping or pixel binning. This means that the video is coming off the sensor at higher than 4K resolution, and then being downsampled to its final output resolution. And it’s not by a small margin, either: 4K video is effectively oversampled by about 1.7 times. And compared side-by-side with 4K footage from the RX100 IV, the Sony RX100 Mark V’s output is noticeably wider-angle at the same focal length.

If you recorded some 4K video in AVCHD format from iMovie, you can import them to iMovie for futher editing. But some users have problems in that. Why? How to solve that? Maybe your Sony DSC-RX100 V AVCHD video is not friendly with iMovie.
