Expert:  Ashik replied 4 years ago.
Does your Macbook have a firewire port ? Is that is new one ?
Customer: replied 4 years ago.
yes it is brand new. I don't know about the firewire...I think it does.
Expert:  Ashik replied 4 years ago.
The new ones doesn't have a firewire port and no way to add one. The older ones have a firewire port.So Firewire camcorders won't work, so we can look for USB supported camcorders.

I will search for Mac compatible USB Camcorders and will reply back as soon as possible....
Customer: replied 4 years ago.
Thank you...yes I would like it to be usb supported and easy to edit. Please have it use a memory card
Thank you

Forgot to ask..Which is your television system ? NTSC or PAL ?
Customer: replied 4 years ago.
I don't know where to look for that it is not under applications or my mac that I can see
Expert:  Ashik replied 4 years ago.
No you can't find it on your Mac. It depends upon countries. In our country(india), we use PAL system and in USA, i think, they are using NTSC systems.

Just ask your friend's about it...because some camcorders supports NTSC and some supports PAL. I need to know which system are you using...

Customer: replied 4 years ago.
ntsc....I am in the usa
Customer: replied 4 years ago.
I guess this is not going to work out. You can't help me. I was hoping you could . It is difficult to choose products that are compatible with mac and the ones on the apple site are not recommended. lease let me know if you are going to figure this out or not. My time is valuable.
Customer: replied 4 years ago.
hello?
Expert:  Ashik replied 4 years ago.
Yes, i can help you. I'm very sorry for wasting your time, apologies. And sorry for the delay...

I will post the answer in 10 minutes....
Expert:  Ashik replied 4 years ago.
I found many camcorders which are supported by Mac OS X.

But i'm trying to find the best of the best. I can just give you a camcorder name, but i won't. I'm trying to find a good one which is worth the money....You know, i've been searching camcorder for the last one hour.

Again, i'm very sorry for wasting your time. Apologies...

Please give me 10 minutes...

Customer: replied 4 years ago.
okay thank you:)

Expert:  Ashik replied 4 years ago.
Okay...Here are is USB Camcorder supported by Mac OS X. This is a Standard Defenition Camcorder, not High Defenition.

Canon FS200 : Click Here
Supported by Mac OS X (iMovie)
USB HighSpeed Connectivity and Flash SDHC Memory Card
Retail Price (Canon's Price) : $299.99

This is the one which i can found (under $400). Please see live demo and try it from any local store before purchasing it.

I found some good Sony and other Camcorders, but i didn't found anything which uses Memory Card which are supported by Mac OS X

  • Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill Bill M. Schenectady, New York
