Hi there, I have posted a few threads. And thank you for all of your answers. But - I have found a cheap HDR-HC7, and am willing to buy it. The reason why I am being so absolute about it is because I have bought 2 previous cameras - both not working. I have an Intel Core Duo iMac 17". Tiger. and Final Cut Express HD 3.5 Will it work? Thank you so much everyone.
