I have a digital video camcorder and I want to record video straight into my new powerbook. The camcorder has the tiny dv(?) port just like the apple. Can anyone link me to an appropriate cable and software?
you want a 4pin to 6pin Firewire (IEEE 1394) cable for your Mini DV port to your Mac. You should be able to find one of these at any local computer or camera store (ie. Best Buy, CompUSA, Fry's, etc.)



Your Mac comes with iMovie. This is a free, powerful and easy to use application. Go capture of film and go home and hook up your DV camera to your mac and just play around with it figuring it out. You'll instantly fall in love.

Another question. Does anybody have some good shortcut keys like alt-tab, alt-space, and ctrl-alt-del like in windows? I just started using Mac and my speed of operations is greately diminuished because of my lack of knowledge of shortcut keys.
There are a bunch of short cut commands in Mac OS X. This Site covers most of them
