iMovie is pretty popular, so you should be ok but look at Cineform too.

It's best to experiment with settings and to a certain extent it depends on how powerful your computer is when it comes to rendering/editing, etc.

This card is probably one of the more reliable out there at the moment >>> www.hobbymounts.co.uk/shop/Transcend-32GB-Premium-Micro-SD-Class-10-Memory-Card

And the results, will be MILES better than your iPhone :cool:

Editing HD video requires quite a bit of horse power from the average computer.

The more processor speed, RAM, (SSD) and top end graphics card, the better one will be.

That being said, we can not all afford a top end computer system.

Although the editing itself can be frustrating, choppy video, VERY slow render times, the produced video as a MPEG 4 will look great.

There is simply no easy way around editing HD video with current [affordable] technology, unless you want to shoot SD video.
