    Mac-Compatible MiniDV Cams
    So I'm on the prowl for a MiniDV camcorder that is Mac compatible.. Not looking to spend a whole lot, it isn't professional footage. Just for snapshotsof thigns and making quick home movies with.

    The only requirement is that it needs to be Mac-Compatible and be able to work with iMovie/iDVD.

    I've tried searching the forums with no avail, and google has nothing under $600 CDN.

    any miniDV camera you want will be mac compatible, as long as its new... the really old models did not had firewire, but as of now you can not buy one with out a firewire and that is the only requirement that imovie has. So pick the one you can afford that you like the most.

    Oh wicked.. That saves me the headache.. Firewire is definetly a must-have, obviously for iMove, but for data transfers as well. Thanks!

    I do all my video on a Canon Optura 20, and it's great. It's a couple years old, but it gets the job done.

    The key is to make sure it has firewire, as PowerbookG4 said.
