I've just got a new V1 to use alongside my D700, and I'm delighted. Looks like the D700 is going to be seeing a holiday...
Part of my reason for getting the V1 was video. But I'm struggling to find a way of editing its video files.
I use Sony Vegas as my video editor, and whilst its happy with 1080/30fps .mov files from the V1, it won't even start to look at 1080/60fps files.
Anybody got any bright ideas of which way to go to be able to use the V1's full capability?

Yes I have. I also explored upgrading. I use Sony Vegas Movie Studio and went as far as downloading a trial version of Sony Vegas Pro to try to solve the problem. (The forums are full of bleak stories of SVMS being 32 bit and limited to addressing 2MB of RAM whilst SVP is 64 bit with greater memory addressing).
It didn't solve the problem. Then I thought it must be a PC performance issue so tried moving it all onto my son's gaming laptop (i7/8MB/accelerated graphics). Even that combination couldn't open the files.
As I'm guessing this problem is common to anybody using a Nikon DSLR (or 1) for video, there must be a solution out there.

I've been using Microsoft's free Movie Maker software. It seems to work pretty well for my files, but I am not positive what my settings were when I recorded the video.
