    You're going to need to tell us what specific brand and model of camcorder you have to get a useful answer.

    The method and options depend on whether it's a MiniDV camcorder with Firewire or a flash memory/hard drive based camcorder, and in the latter case different companies and models use different formats of video, which will require different methods to import.
