I have recently purchased a new Camcorder (Panasonic SD900) to replace my older Panasonic NV38DS (Mini DV Tapes). I am a new convert to Apple having changed to an iMac just under a year ago. I have two problems 1) My New SD900 shoots in 1080/50p and the picture is extremely good. However I cannot download my footage onto iMovie11 for editing. I am told Apple does not offer any support for 1080/50p. Is this policy likely to change ? (perhaps with the new Mountain Lion OS). 2) Having accumulated a number of DV Mini tapes with my older Panasonic NV-DS38 Camcorder I thought I would have a first attempt at editing them on iMovie11. However I cannot seem to get the iMac 21.5 (OSX Lion) to recognize the Camcorder. So it seems that I am unable to edit either old or new. Any help with either would be welcome.
