Are you trying to use iMovie or Final Cut (Express/Pro)?
For iMovie, the process is this:
start iMovie
plug in DV camera using Firewire
import video (click on 'import button')

What have you tried so far?

im sure the manual would tell you...


btw, why would you get such a high end camera if you dont know how to capture? not trying to be rude, its just that is a pretty basic thing for anyone who has ever used a computer to edit video.
