Also shoot 30 frames a second as iMovie does not work with 1080p60 or 720p60 (Well you can import 720p60 but it will turn it to 30fps)

I am still waiting on the nikon d7000. The footage I was playing with before was taken from a raw file import. This guy raises a question i had actually. When importing from these cameras do you use file Import from camera or must you navigate to a coder that houses the .mov files and do files I port movies?
With my lumix camera that shoots avhcd lite I just do a file import camera. Just curious. Tx. Still need to go buy that rodeo mic. However, camera will take a few more weeks.

Currently Being ModeratedNov 29, 2010 1:48 AM (in response to Sheryl Kingstone)Well I think every device is different and Apple just changed some things in OS X 10.6.5. For me, personally, my Droid X Phone used to work as and attached device inside both iMovie, Aperture, and iPhoto. Meaning it would see it as a photo/video device when I plugged it in. Now I have to navigate to the files and import them The result is the same just a bit more work.3.33 Ghz 6 way, Mac OS X (10.6.4), 6GB RAM
Currently Being ModeratedDec 2, 2010 10:45 AM (in response to Daniel Slagle)FYI..Got camera. imovie doesn't recognize camera at all. Can't even navigate to use file import movies. I gotta take out card and mount with USB card reader. Then import file movies. I have a question if you still are reading this thread. Do you have any idea why imovie9 would recognize the 24p footage!! I totally don't get it. I posted in imovie9, but I don't think anyone could answer that question. It just seems strange.macbook aluminum, 2.4, 4 gig, 320, imac dual core, 1.8, Mac OS X (10.5.6), sony HDC-HC3, appleTV, ipods, hard drives, WDMP

I got around the problem by importing video into iPhoto (recognises 7D), exported to desktop (Export original format) and imported back into iMovie (import -> Movies).
Not exactly a one click solution, but seems to work.

I found the same - using my 7D, the only way to import video is using iPhoto. I don't use it myself, instead use Aperture, but it doesn't recognize video files.
The same for photos - my MBA 13 can't see the DCIM folder like other computers, instead, have to import photos via Aperture, etc. Works well.

I found this to be effective also. I imported the contents of my images and videos from the Canon 7D into iPhoto, then exported to a new folder, then opened iMovie and Imported it from there. It worked. Twice the time and trouble, but it worked. You'll have to be mindful of the copying of duplicate files here than there. Why is Apple so inconsistent?
