If your camera has firewire (IEEE-1394) (page 13 of the manual shows it does) it can export HD. If not, HDMI is not an option for you unless you can find a gadget that allows you to hook it up through your USB ports. The HDMI option I was mentioning was for systems that can have some card attached to them which the MB can not have.

If I'm looking at the right manual, your camera can export HD through the firewire port but may have to be set up to play back HDV. See page 40.

As for your second question, my guides will be helpful to get a good export for video sites. Read the sites recommendations and other information. For instance Vimeo sets the frame rate of HD to 24fps while YouTube says they don't change it. This matters because converting 30fps to 24fps causes a jerky effect. With my guide you can experiment with that setting and see the effect on your exports.

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.
