I'm trying to decide between a Sony DCR-DVD505 and a Panasonic VDR-D300. Does anyone know if the Sony produces files compatible with iMovie? Other Sony DVD camcorders produce VOB files, which are not compatible and if this Sony does the same, it's out. Also, does anyone have experience with the Panasonic model? I"m limiting choices to DVD or hard drive recorders, because I'm tired of dealing wth tape. Thanks for your help.
