Converting Nikon D5200 footage for Final Cut Pro X on Mac

Nikon D5200′s 24MP CMOS sensor is the same as the D3200′s, but Nikon very specifically says this isn’t the case, and the two have slightly different specifications. In practical terms, the D5200 offers a higher extended ISO range compared to it’s little brother – 25600 vs 12800 – and faster continuous shooting (5 fps vs 4). For video shooters the D5200 can record Full HD 1920 x 1080 movies at up to 60i or 50i (when set to NTSC and PAL respectively), although this uses a central crop of the sensor area (~1.25x). More conventional 30p, 25p and 24p modes use the full width of the sensor.
