The HD Camera Canon EOS C300 features 50Mbps MPEG-2 4:2:2 codec, recording HD videos to Compact Flash(CF) Cards and the recordings reduce the jagged edges and Moiré patterns that can plague video with 4:2:0 chroma subsampling and lead to post-production challenges.

Final Cut Express 4, as the incarnation of Apple's mid-level editing tool, brings it with more similar features as Final Cut Pro and attracts more users, who have been mastered at iMovie but become confusing after reviewing the tutorials of Final Cut Pro. Some EOS C300 users want to import Canon C300 MXF to FCE for further editing on Mac OS, they will meet the incompatibility. In this page, we will talk about how to transfer C300 1080i MXF files to FCE keepin original video quality.
