Not recommended for...

Folks who are very short on time. Raw footage from this camera has to be imported into iMovie, FinalCut Pro or Premiere in order to be edited then exported. In the very least, raw .mts files must be converted to a smaller, more share-friendly format (like .mp4) - this takes time.
