I originally thought that the higher quality option for the camera wouldn't be compatible with iMovie but due to updates on the programme .mts files now work so I don't have to download a third party file converter.

After doing test recordings I decided that I wasn't happy with the quality of the picture so I researched ways to improve it. From this we found out that AVCHD produced better video quality but the default setting was motion JPEG as it was more compatible with other devices and would take up less space on the SD card as you can see from the table above. I switched over to AVCHD to be able to record in 1080p as opposed to 720p.
