a large format TV or for saving to disc.

This is a simpler video format best used when extensive editing is needed, or when 
uploading videos to the internet.

Motion pictures recorded in [AVCHD] or [MP4] may be played back with poor picture or

compatible with these formats. Also, the recording information may not be displayed 
properly. In this case, use this unit.
There is no compatibility between [MP4] and [AVCHD] (including [AVCHD Lite]) formats.
