M2TS to H.264 mp4-Import Panasonic HDC-SD60 HD M2TS to Adobe Premiere Elements
A more affordable model in Panasonic’s HDC series of camcorders, the HDC-SD60 ($429.99 list) sports a 2.11-megapixel MOS sensor and a 35.7-millimeter lens with 35x intelligent zoom. It’s about $300 cheaper than the HDC-SD600 ($729.99 list), and features a 2.7-inch LCD.
Panasonic HDC-SD60 records videos and capture photos onto an SDXC, SDHC, or SD Memory Card with 16Gb, 32Gb and 64Gb. Even though the AVCHD camcorder records 1080/50i video for PAL model, and 1080/60i for NTSC model, the audio is stored as Dolby Digital 2ch stereo and video up to 17Mbps.
