Yes but still not sure if I should use mxp,fxp,xp+ or the standard sp mode. Will eventuality be editing on my computer. And do want the best quality but in the mxp mode it takes up so much space. What does most everyone use?

Go here to see a sample. This is 720p edited with iMovie. I also have the 5.1 surround mike attached.

Read this (not the same model, but lots of valuable info): http://provideocoalition.com/index.p...chd_camcorder/

You cannot create a spec-legal AVCHD disc from unedited MXP clips.
