are there any cameras that are favored by apple mac owners, cuz of their software compatibility or ease of transfer files or converting files ??
now back to the search…
Some hard drive camcorders create AVI files, others make MOV.
As far as converting files goes, using a camcorder which records MOVs (QuickTime) should be the most straightforward. You’ll have to convert AVI’s for good performance in Final Cut Pro.
yes hard drive camcorders can be hit and miss, but mini dv’s to my knowlegde are all good to go. I use Sony hdr hc1, and have rented others including gl2s no problems.
thanks guys !
yea I had the JVC GX-21u
a great camcorder, and took nice enough stills.
created .MOD files in an mpeg-2 format, that needed to be converted to .MOV files to play with in iMovie or from what I hear, FCSP2
