    Well, I bought a Samsung VP-D362 MiniDV camcorder last July. It works fine with my Windows computer but when I get a Mac, I don't know if it will work. The only reason I'm asking is because I don't want to buy "iStopMotion" with my Mac if my camera won't work with it - I would rather spend the money I would spend on iStopMotion getting a new and better camera that will work with my Mac (iStopmotion works with every camera that is supported by Quicktime, by the way).

    I'm just wondering if anyone else has this camera and uses it with their mac or knows if Samsung cameras work with Macs... I don't really want to spend £250 on a programme that might not work with my camera! haha.

    I have looked at Samsung's site and their doesn't seem to be a specific Mac Driver for the camera...

    All help appreciated :) thanks in advance.

    If your miniDV camcorder has a FireWire port, then it should work with iMovie out-of-the-box.

    I think it has - I only use the USB at the moment because my PC doesn't have a firewire port :rolleyes:

    Ah, I just found the manual. It has support for IEEE 1394 - that's Firewire, isn't it?
    It says here that the camera is a "4-pin Jack" or something...

    Oh, I think the book has answered my question - it says in the system requirements "Mac OS (9.1-10.2)"

    ...Must be a pretty old camera, despite the fact that I only bought it in 2006 :|
