hi
i am new to this site,i find it very informative,i am in the market now for a camcorder and the one i have seen is a panasonic HDC-SD20,reading the info about this item it says it records to mpeg4,so my question is will i be able to download the movie clips from this machine onto my imac and watch and create dvd's using imovie,or will i have to download some other form of software,i have just bought the imac a couple of months ago so all the programmes i assume are upto date
any help would be most welcome as i don't want to spend nearly 400 quid on something that wont be compatable with my imac.

kind regards tone

According to Panasonics site here:

HDC-SD20-K - Full HD SD Card Camcorder [HDC-SD20-K] - Panasonic Australia

it says it is compatible with imovie, and it carries the apple Works with IMovie label - so I think your safe. I also noticed in one of the spec sheets I stumbled on it listed both imovie 08 and imovie 09. Earlier versions may not work.

My Macs: 2012 Non-Retina 15" MBP; Mac mini G4, 1.25 GHz, 512m ram (server); Late 2011 11" MBA, 1.8GHz i7, 4Gig Ram, 256Gig SSD, HD3000; Powerbook 12" G4 1.33GHz running Debian as a server; Apple TV (1080p version)
