I presume there's no way to feed footage directly into a Mac from these machines but via direct video input, and thanks to the lame-o slot drive I also presume it's not even possible to actually load the DVD into the machine as well. Just wanted to check if anyone had any bright ideas about editing it. My parent bought the UX7. The computer is a Macbook. The shopping rationale according to said parent was: "Shoots straight onto DVD, I like it. Can I have the most expensive one please". On being asked how to load it up to the Mac, I professed lack of personal knowledge only to have "it was very expensive" repeated over and over again. I know what will happen if I say it's not possible - it'll be my fault and to prevent the mention of it forever I will have to buy parent something that works. So any suggestions would be appreciated, thanks.
