My sony A33 camera video Test (Playing AVCHD, .cpi, .mts files)

Remember last post from the dogwood festival I couldn't find out how to upload a video?

OMG !!! it took me forever. if you have an AVCHD camera and you are losing your mind, let me save you 3 hours of frustration especially if it's a sony digital camera. The file you are looking for is in the AVCHD folder, then go to STREAM!! the .MTS files are the right ones, not .CPI.

I tried to play this on my windows computer after hours, and it refused, because I was working with .cpi files aka the wrong files. Then I tried my apple computer, and the apple guy was stomped

so I called sony while using my mac. ANSWER: Connect your computer to the mac, then go to imovie, and go where it says import from camera. then all will be right with the world. Remember, .MTS is under STREAM. now edit. (if your video is HD, over 6 mins and you plan to upload via youtube, smugmug or facebook say bye to 4+ hours of your life.)

lol now enjoy!

well here's the video from my dslr, of the statue singing. What are they called? Statues? Mimes? I don't know lol.

Now I know how to do videos, might do one soon. lol seems like I post a video a year. smh that's bad.

from my Sony SLT A33 under the HD.

& this video is from my friends wedding in Houston (pics next post):
I took the video since a lot of my High School friends are in Nigeria, so they get to see her, her new hubby, and two bridesmaids that went to college with us.

the pictures are way better than my video. Just remember first timer, and also first time using imovie. So.... I've obviously get much better soon lol, and it might not be as noisy or shaky.

And a song I'm OBSESSED WITH!
not shot with my camera lol

Adele Rolling in the deep (Studio Footage)

the official video can be seen here: LOVE IT:


  1. Oh my goodness! I've been OBSESSED with Adele lately. Her voice is hypnotizing and soulful. I listen to her everyday haha. Your camera seems really nice.

  2. I think that you camera does a great job on videos. I'm a little jealous.
    I think I must be the only person in the world who doesn't care for "rolling in the deep". Athough I must admit that I love Adele's voice. Did you hear her remake of the Cure's Lovesong. That I like! m.

  3. I missed the Dogwood Festival :( My friend wanted to go to Sweetwater Festival and since she was a guest I obliged :(
