Santa will be bringing this camcorder to two boys tonight. We've the iMac and MB [both ~3 yo; will be getting a new(er) iMac and/or Mac Pro in the coming year, mainly for more digital imaging / graphics horsepower & s/w capabilities]. So, with that said, are there any hints, suggestions, tips, recommendations, etc. regarding on what to do, what NOT to do, in regards to the camcorder's battery, recording, downloading, etc.? And/or anything related to the Apple - such as better software to use? Device will be used per their devious hearts and minds content, along with family, vacation, school, etc. footage. Thanks.
