Elliot, given the difficulties you mention with specific camcorders at the beginning of your post and as an owner of one of those camcorders - would you recommend selling this camcorder and purchasing one that records video in a more-acceptable format, or will your program convert mxf to avi without any noticeable loss in quality? I just wanted to make sure the video I take is being preserved as much as possible through the production stage.
