The long-awaited Christmas and New Year holiday is approaching,what¡¯s your plan about this? Have a great and lively party with your family andfriends in your fresh decorated house, or go outside to have a vacation travel withthem to enjoy the amazing snowy winter, or go aboard to lie in the sun andsunbathe on the beaches. Whatever you do, it¡¯s a nice idea to record all thesefree and happy moments as beautiful memory. As far as I know, lots of familieshave JVC, Canon, Panasonic mod camcorders, which shot footage in the special.mod format. MOD is the informal name of tapeless video format used by JVC, Panasonic,and Canon in some models of camcorders, such as JVC GZ-MG130, GZ-MS100U,GZ-MG255, Panasonic SDR-SW20, SDR-SW21, SDR-S26, Canon FS100, FS200, FS21 andso on. It is used exclusively for standard definition video files, and hasnever been given to a meaning explanation or official name by JVC or Panasonic,the pioneers of it. Since .mod format is unable to be recognized by nearly allpopular portable devices, like iPod, iPhone, PSP, etc. and video editingsoftware, before you deal with these files, you definitely need a MOD converterto do pre-conversion work. As a Mac user, personally I use Pavtube [url=http://www.pavtube.com/mod-converter-mac/]MOD Converter for Mac[/url] todo this job; it works well for me all the time with fast conversion speed andno audio/video out of sync issues, so I share it here, hope it will be of somehelp for you who are having such needs.
