I also just purchased HDD camcorder, Sony. Spent hours with Sony support on-line and then hours more with genius bar at local Apple store . yes, buying Quikctime pro ($20) lets you import MPEG2 format of this video recorder onto iBook. ...then Streamclip (free download ) is required to get sound to your video. however...after all these hours of support we were all unable to get a way to burn this video once on iMovie or Streamclip onto a dvd...which is my promary goal...to get video of my kids on to my computer to burn a DVD for storage...I do not want to create elaborate movies or store on my computer (takes too much space). One way we found was very cumbersome and took 10-20 min for 30 sec clip. I returned the camcorder. I really want a tapeless/disc-less amcorder system and am determined to stay with Mac (like most of us). Any ideas?
