    Any Suggestions for which iMac and video software?
    I'm a former film shooter (photographer) turning pro I just purchased a Canon 5D Mark II 35mm camera. It has the ability to shoot HD video as well as stills.

    I'm planning on getting an iMac (fits my budget). I haven't edited digital video and wanted to ask suggestions on which iMac would work best... and which video software I should start with.

    I'm planning on experimenting with video, posting self-promo video clips, short video clips etc... nothing huge.

    The Canon shoots H.264, so you'll have to consider that workflow.

    Don't hate Windows. Just use Parallels! Best of both worlds!

    H.264 video is not designed for editing. Ideally use MPEGStreamclip to convert to a more editing friendly format.

    iMovie is a good place to start - but once you get the hang of it you may find it a little limiting. Final Cut Express gives you more freedom and there are resources online that could help you figure it out. I personally would use Final Cut.
