    I have purchased several camcorders from costco, but none of them have easy compatibility in video format when I transfer the video to the macbook. Is there any HD camcorder on the market under $1,000 that is compatible with macs? Please help!

    Canon

    I have the Canon HG 20 shoot 24fps cinema, and import to iMovie. It isn't hard. Decent video, and more than good enough for YouTube.

    Does your Macbook have Firewire or is the unibody without firewire?

    hg20

    I have two Macs at home- MBA first version, and iMac. I do the transfer via USB on the iMac.
    After reading Puckhead's post, I changed setting from Cinema (though never had a problem).
