    Does that mean, you have videos shot with your camera (a photo camera) and stored them inside iPhoto and in iMovie you can't access them via the media browser?

    I don't know what you mean with camera icon, but I could add photos to my iMovie project (and I never use iPhoto and iMovie as I find them frustrating).
    In iMovie, go to Window >> Photos (CMD+2) and drag the photos from whatever event onto the timeline and then change what you want.

    Same Problem

    I am having the same issue. None of the icons on my browser bar of iMovie are selectable! Including the camera. I am trying to put some still shots from iPhoto into a Trailer I am making on iMovie but I cannot select the Flipping Camera icon! It has been driving me crazy for hours!

    Having just tried a Trailer, it would seem that all you can add are clips from the Events Library. All the icons for Music, Photos, Titles, Transitions and Maps are greyed out.
