      Any suggestions for a camera that is compatible with iMovie 10 (iOS Mavericks)…in other words no additional file conversions required? Budget is $1,500 and I want included:
      • Handle (mounted to camera)
      • External shotgun mic (affixed to shoe mount on handle)
      • Protective Case
      • Tripod
      • Extra battery
      Thanks

      Hi HG – to get an iMovie compatible camera and everything else on your list for $1500, you mayhave to buy a used camcorder.

       

      The best camcorder option is probably a used JVC GY-HM100U for $954.25 from Amazon Warehouse Deals.  This price includes the top handle and the microphone.  The HM100U records to Quicktime .mov files that are 100% compatible with iMovie and Final Cut without transcoding.

       

      Here are a couple of examples of what this camcorder can do:

      With a $28 Wasabi spare battery, a $120 Ravelli AVTP dual-handle fluid head tripod and a $43 pro camcorder case, you'll be in business for less than $1200.

       

      Hope this is helpful!
