I'm trying to help some friends figure out if their newly-purchased Hitachi DZ-GX 5060E video camera will work with their Intel MBP, running 10.4.9. Here's a link to the camera's spec sheet: http://www.hitachidigitalmedia.com/brochures/en_GB/dzgx5060e_datasheet.pdf In the store, the salesperson assured them it would. At home, the computers will recognize the camera as a peripheral, but iMovie doesn't see it. The file can be imported to the HD via the 3rd party app that came with the program (Image Mixer), then to iPhoto movie (iPhoto 0.0.8), and then into iMovie, but this is too clumsy. Is there any hope, or do they have to return it? The owner of the camera will jump into the thread with more info if needed.
