Hello all.

I'm writing to ask if there is any way to connect a Panasonic SDR-H80 Cam to my MacBook Pro for a "live stream" (no need to stream it over the internet, only on my screen); the problem is that this kind of Cam doesn't have a Firewire Port, so I'm stuck with the USB cable or A/V one (if there's some kind of adapter for Mac). Can anyone help me?

Second question:

Is there a way (software? Free possibly) to have this "stream" time-lapsed for something like 15-20 seconds?
