Last year, Canon launched the [quote] http://www.brorsoft.com/how-to/convert-canon-c300-1080i-mxf-files-to-prores-for-fcp7.html [/quote] EOS C300. Now, the company has announced a new camera, [b]the C500[/b], which has been designed to target motion picture and high-resolution digital production industries, supporting 4K RAW output and will be available with Canon's EF and PL mounts.Based upon the same platform as its predecessor, the C500 will have the added support of raw video capture and 4:4:4 sampling during the 12-bit RGB (2,048 x 1,080 pixels)2K capture.The EOS C500 uses the industry-standard Material Exchange Format (MXF) for its internal recording file structure. It is a not good editable format for Final Cut Pro 6/7 and FCP X, or some other editing programs like iMovie, FCE, etc on Mac as it it really complex to handle.

One of my best friends Jack who uses the C300 now told me that I just need to find a professional MXF Converter then all problems can be sloved.
