The following is a Sony WX80 camera user's question:

"I have a Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX80 camera, I recorded many video clips during father's day, has anybody else had issues when attempting to import Sony WX80 1080/60i AVCHD video clips to FCP 7? The codec is AVCHD. This is the first time I've ever had crashing problems with AVCHD, please help."
