I saw some threads on Apple's discussion boards about it working with iMovie, just not how instructions might say. Well yep, it does. So far, it seems to work nicely. I wanted something that wouldn't require frickin' tapes for if I needed to record something for a while. The salesman said the video quality wasn't any different than a MiniDV, and it looks like he's right. My dog was a little spotty on playback before I exported it, but he is blacker than midnight and it wasn't exactly a fully lighted area. He looked fine earlier in the day. The sound is also decent. It's not DTS or anything, but it's good for the price. I'm not sure what to think about USB taking over for FireWire, but it looks like the importing is done much quicker. It doesn't do a realtime playback to import, so that should save countless, um, hours! Well, just thought someone else might want to know about this camera. It's not listed as compatible with iMovie, but I got it to work just by selecting "Disc Burn" when the menu comes up after plugging in the USB cable. If anybody else uses this model, I'd love to know what you think!
