Which consumer HD camera would you recommend to use with a Macbook pro? I've heard certain cameras don't work with Macs...

Thanks for your help.

Macbook Pro 2.4 GHz with 4GB Ram, Mac OS X (10.6.2), Own a I MAC 20

    Hi there,

    Pretty much all DV, HDV, and AVCHD camcorders are compatible with the basic iMovie and the more advanced Final Cut. If you intend to start with basic editing software and perhaps upgrade in the future I'd recommend getting one that records in one of these formats.

    Macbook Aluminum 13'' (2.4GHz, 4GB RAM), Mac OS X (10.6.2), FCE 4.0.1 - WD External (2TB RAID1) - Canon VIXIA HG21 (AVCHD Camcorder)
