Since we don't know your mac specs I have to ask...does your Mac have an SD slot ?

I believe that if you connect your SD card or your camera itself, you can slide the capture/edit slider (not the real name, I know) to capture and your camera should appear as a source.

I shoot HD video on my Pana Lumix FZ28 and import automatically into iPhoto from the SD card. From there I can import to iMovie, or skip that and import directly into iMovie from the card. You just have to pick the resolution and format you want to import it as.
