    Question Using powerbook as a monitor for video??????
    Gday,
    Does anyone know how I can simply use my 'book as a monitor with my HD camera?
    I am filming my son's tennis matches for instant review and when I use imovie it takes forever to import the HD content (not to mention using up my hard drive).
    I would like to simply use the 'book as a monitor so he can quickly review his previous match before he goes back on court for his next one.
    I use a Sony HDR-HC1E.
    Thanks.

    This is not possible to do with the PowerBook.
    You would need to purchase a monitor for this.
