You shooting AVCHD format? You'll need iMovie for that material.

You can change the recording format on the camera to mpeg-4, otherwise they are AVCHD (.mts). This should then import straight to iPhoto. But the MP4 (1440x1080) resolution is slightly less than AVCHD (1920x1080) unfortunately...
1,920 x 1,080
1,440 x 1,080)
whatever that means!

Hi there. For anyone searching, here are the results of my research and corresponding advice back to Sony...
Thanks, your comments looked correct but did not solve my problem. You may be interested to know after much testing and research, I was able to ascertain that some of the camera's AVCHD settings iMovie cannot see at all (only some, which made it even harder to figure out!). Plus, if you have recorded movie clips in more than one format to the memory card (MP4 or any one of the AVCHD's), iMovie cannot see any of the AVCHD's.
Bottom line - forgo the benefits of AVCHD on the Sony NEX-5N and just use MP4 until Apple makes it easier.

It is easy with Apple IF your software is up do date - the current version of iPhoto handles AVCHD - this thread is old and about an older version
