Question Sony HDRSR12??

What do you think of the Sony HDRSR12?

Is it easy for editing? I heard some cameras shoot with complicated file extensions & the vids have to be converted before editing.

I wanna use Premiere Pro 2, but not shore if ill need anything else, like additional codecs or any recommended plug ins.

My system is a high end one, but not shore if I simply edit with the video I shoot, or if I should convert it all to uncompressed? Uncompressed would take up far too my room.

What do you think?

Premiere Pro CS3 won't import the files straight in, so you have no chance with Premiere Pro 2. Not sure if CS4 does or not, it SHOULD. But most new editing systems do support AVCHD, even if they transcode them to a more suitable format for editing. Primary focus on camera as maximum storage space, so the files are compressed. Editing systems like to "decompress" the files, to make it easier for frame accurate editing, this process is easy, and usually does it automatically on importing.
The SR12 is a great camera, and I highly recommend it. For 2009, the XR520V replaces it, and improves on the already great optical image stabilizer, and improves in low-light performance with the back-lit CMOS sensor.
iMovie '08, Final Cut Express, Final Cut Pro 6, Sony Vegas Pro 8 definitely work with these cameras, and there are many more.

I might just drag all the vids to the desktop, then convert them to uncompressed avi? I have a 1.2TB HDD so I got some room.

Got an advice on what program I should use to convert the videos to uncompressed for Premiere pro 2?

thanks again.

If you're using a PC, you can use the supplied software to extract from the camera, not sure what it's able to convert to.

You do not have to dump PremPro2, you could add the excellent Cineform plug in. ProspectHD [and the AspectHD product predecessor I use] converts the input stream into an intermediate file (3X bigger) that really makes PremPro sing with many many realtime effects.
