That camera uses AVCHD. You need to transfer the memory cards entire contents to your system (the entire folder structure from the memory card/hard drive). You can then navigate to that folder on your local system within Premiere's Media Browser panel. Drag from the media browser to your project library and cut away.
In this case, you need to use a 3rd party convert to Sony .mts files into mov which is full suppported by Premiere Pro. Pavtube MTS/M2TS Converter for Mac is the one I choose.
