The Canon VIXIA HF10 is an ultra compact camcorder that captures HD video in the AVCHD H.264 video file format. What makes the camcorder unique is the dual storage capabilities built into the camera. It doesn't use video tape or DVD disc or a hard disk; rather, it captures video and still images either via the camcorder's built-in 16GB Flash memory, or via SDHC (Serial Digital High Capacity) memory cards.

So if you use Canon VIXIA HF10 for the 1920×1080i AVCHD recording and want to edit the 1080i mts files on Mac with FCP, but Canon HF10’ s recording AVCHD MTS files are not the preferred format for Final Cut Studio.
