    New to Mac and need a Camcorder.
    I have been playing with the notion of getting a new HD camcorder to replace my Sony MiniDV. I have read many negative post about HD camcorders because nothing seems to be compatible with Macs. I read where everyone advises to use MiniDV but I want to move ahead with technology not stay put with older technology. Now I not educated enough on Videography to make that assumption but HD seems to be the move to the future. How about HD MiniDV's? I have a budget of $13000

    That should do you good...

    You'll want to be aware of stories like this and this from Macworld.

    Also look for reviews. Again from MW, this one mentions how the reviewer could not use the highest setting of the reviewed camera.
    CameraTime - Time lapse photography for novice and advanced users.

    When asking questions, post the version of your software. You'll receive better answers.

    Please post your results to the thread as it is good feedback.

    I'm hoping to buy a new Mac Book 2.4GHz w/ 4 GB and get Final Cut Studio 2. I want to buy an HD camcorder with a hard drive, such as the Sony HDR-XR500V or Canon VIXIA HG21. Are these camcorder, via USB 2.0 connections going to put HD video files onto my computer in a way Final Cut Studio 2 can use them? Note too that Mac Books don't have firewire connections, nor do HDD camcorder use firewire at all (only miniDV camcorders use firewire).
