Question about Canon Cameras

1 Answer

I have a 2004 Canon video camera (mini dv cassette) and a 2007 Macbook. With long-time intentions, I am finally getting around to connecting them, though when I did, the software included with the camera seemed to be out of date. I was hoping to easily download video into iMovie. Can it be simple? Do I need to get updated Canon software?

You don't specify which model you have, but all models produced in 2004 and later are compatible with Mac X OS 10 operating systems for downloading video. The software that came with the camcorder is primarily for downloading still images, not for video. Go to this link. In the first dropdown, select "Camcorders", and in the second select "MiniDV Camcorders". In the third dropdown, find and select your model and click on GO. In the seach window in the center of the screen type "mac compatibility" and click on Search. You will find several related documents which provide information on downloading video and other topics.

Canon ZR-800 Mini DV Camcorder tape stuck


The way I can get a tape unjammed on my Sony camera is to remove the battery, plug the camera into the AC charger that is plugged into the wall outlet. Then power the camera on, wait a few seconds. Then unplug the charger from the outlet, wait a few more seconds (camera still in "on" position) and then plug it back in. I have used this method at least 3 times to get the camera to release the tape and finally eject. However, the tape is usually pulled or stretched and I use a small flat head screwdriver to wind the tape back in, but expect that portion of the video to be ruined.
