“I have a Pentax K-1 Mark II which I use a lot for video (“.MOV” format) but occasionaly I find the need to edit those clips, then save a shorter, edited version (hopefully without any or too much degradation) in the same .MOV format. So, what’s the deal with .MOV files and is there a simple way to edit those files on mac?”

The K-1 Mark II from Pentax is the follow-up to their first full-frame flagship DSLR. Revolving around a 36.4MP CMOS sensor and PRIME IV image processor, the camera is capable of producing high-resolution stills at up to 4.4 fps along with recording Full HD video. The 14-bit image processor has been updated with a Ricoh-developed Accelerator Unit, which helps to reduce noise and increase clarity and color accuracy, as well as boost the sensitivity range up to ISO 819200 for working in low-light conditions. Also contributing to improved image quality is the 5-axis Shake Reduction system, which minimizes the appearance of camera shake for sharper handheld shooting. This image stabilization system also enables Pixel Shift Resolution II, which leverages the movement of the sensor to record for sequential frames and merge them together in order to acquire greater color detail and resolution. Dynamic Pixel Shift Resolution also benefits from this technology, however lets you achieve similar results even when working handheld.Pentax K-1 Mark II can records MPEG-4 AVC/H.264 and MOV videos.
