a37 SLT-A37K is an excellent camera from Sony Alpha DSLR series. Whether you're shooting stunning 16.1MP still images or Full HD video, you'll be sure to nail the shot with Tele-zoom High Speed Shooting at up to 7fps, complete with continuous auto focus. With superb low-light performance, you'll walk away with richly-detailed photos even in challenging lighting conditions. The included 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 zoom lens features smooth and silent AF operation with a built-in Smooth Autofocus Motor (SAM) to handle the full range of your most common shots.

However the camera is an old camera, some users can't find a way to help them to import the recorded AVCHD .mts/.m2ts files to Mac for playing or editing with Final Cut Pro. For example"I have had my a37 for about 2 months and finding it a great camera, but just recently been having videos importing problems. I haven't found a simple way to import the results onto my Mac."

AVCHD is a popular format for HD cameras, it is not a good playing and editing format for Mac software. To easily get it to FCP for editing, you'd better change the codec to the best FP video format, like ProRes 422. It menas you need a professional AVCHD Convert tool. If you have not got one, I believe the top Mac AVCHD to FCP Converter can give you a big help. I have use it for a long time and I haven't met any issues with it. The included profile is easy to find and choose. The most important is that I can get any video qualiy I want.

If you have met errors with importing AVCHD to FCP, you can follow the below the AVCHD to ProRes conversion guide.

Step 1: Go to download and install the top AVCHD for Mac Converter on your Mac computer. Launch it to load your MTS/M2TS to it for converting.
Tip: Check the “Merge into one” box for joining AVCHD clips together if you need.

Step 2: Click on the pull down menu of “Format” and select Final Cut Pro > Apple ProRes 422 as the output format. Like Apple ProRes 422 HQ is also the proper choice.

Step 3: Press the “Settings” icon to freely set video resolution, frame rate, bitrate, etc freely. You need to change the frame rate to 30fps for easy editing in FCP.
