“I have recorded some 4K and 1080p MOV videos by my friend’s Nikon D5 camera. I tried to edit them in FCP X for playing on my different devices, but failed. Does FCP support MOV? 4K MOV? If so, how to get that done? Need helps!”

Matching the imaging versatility, the Nikon D5 is also characterized by its redeveloped Multi-CAM 20K 153-point AF system, which incorporates 99 cross-type sensors for refined precision when tracking moving subjects or working in difficult lighting conditions. This model features dual XQD memory card slots, to provide versatility in file handling during shooting, and a range of selectable raw file sizes can also be used depending on output needs.
