Hello, my name isXXXXX will stay with you until the problem is resolved.
For iMovie HD you want 1394 more commonly known as FireWire ports on the camcorder.
Because iMovie HD cannot import via USB as iMovie 08 can.

Daniel :

I am looking up some now.

Customer :

What are the best hd camcorders that have firewire ports? (under $600)

Daniel :

Sony, Canon, JVC all make them, the format you want is Mini DV tape and stay away from DVD type or tapeless.
As to which is best is a matter of taste and features you want, the most important is it have the firewire out.
The reason is with that interface you have camera control from iMovie and it can read the format the video is in.

Customer :

That should help me narrow down the coices, thanks.
