I have a sony pc 100 dv cam. I am trying to find the right cable to connect it to my mac. I need what ever sony uses one one end and usb on the other.


your camcorder doesnt support usb connection.although it came with a pc serial cable,its the cable used for memory stick picture transfer, along with it comes a serial port adaptor for the memory stick and ac adaptor for serial adaptor. of course even if you lost this accessories you can still transfer pics from the ms using a memory card reader which works basically the same way. for videos on the tape you would just need a firewire or an ilink (ieee1394) cable. almost all mac computers support this connection.it's the dv in/out jack on the camcorder with an i symbol.upper most jack on the camcorder jack's location.check your mac to find out what cable you need.the unit uses a 4pin ilink port so you need a 4pin ilink cable at one end and the other end should match of course, the firewire port on your mac computer.should be a plug and play connection.you can use imovie software for video capturing.hope this helps.thanks :)

Panasonic Camcorder and my Mac - I can't download my videos to new apple mac iphoto or (image capture)


Simple fix.  This camera saves all the videos as .mod files.  But they're actually MPEG2 encoded.  If you rename them to something that ends with .mpg, then Quicktime will recognize them.

The camera isn't actually designed to work with a Mac.  From what I understand, you have to use a memory card reader to even transfer the files to a Mac.

I will email this to you as well.

Canon FS200 camcorder: can I download to a mac? If not, what wou


yes, it does.
It only works with iLife 08 or 09, not older version.
It's easier to connect with a card reader to your Mac, Open iMovie to import. If via Camcorder, make sure Camcorder is set to display->Print/PC.

to transfer video from your camcorder to your pc you will need a firewire cable (ieee 1394). only with this cable you will be able to transer video.
you will also need a firewire port on your pc.
if you don't have one then you can buy a firewire pci card.

Can't transfer videos from JVC Everio camcorder onto my MAC


Share: How to import .tod files from JVC Everio HDD Camcorder to iMovie?

Requirements: iMovie (Part of the iLife 08 package)

Step 1: Connect the Everio to the Mac (Via USB)
Make sure you are powering the Everio from the mains before connecting your JVC Everio Camcorder.

Step 2: Playback on PC
Select “Playback on PC” on the Everio, once connected you will see the Everio HDD symbol appear on the desktop. The video files on the Everio are stored in the SD Folder/PRG***/MOV***.MOD.

Step 3: Open iMovie
Once you open iMovie, you will see that it recognizes the Everio straight away and will attempt to import your video.

You are now ready to use iMovie to edit your video files.

If need change .tod files to common video formats like mov, mp4, m4v, mpg, mpeg, dv, flv, avi, wmv, 3gp, mkv, mp3, aac, wma, m4a, etc. Mod Tod Video Converter for Mac is a good choice. The program can also convert mod tod to ipod, mod tod to iphone, tod to apple tv, tod to blackberry and more devices!

Uploading video to Mac


You can't transfer videos through USB. You will need a Firewire 6-pin cord and use it to connect from your MAC to the Camcorder. Only then you can transfer videos.

Problem installing ImageMixer 3 software on my Mac.


I just got off the phone with Canon support. I have a Canon HF 100 and was experiencing the same problems. If you have the newest version of iMovie (in iMovie '08....but I would bet '09 would work fine as well...'06 is questionable), you shouldn't have any trouble getting the files off your camera onto your Mac.

Steps:

1. Plug in the camera and turn the power on (or plug in the memory card via a card reader)
2. Open iMovie
3. Wait a few seconds to see if your camera connection automatically opens, if it doesn't, click on the image of the camera on the far left side of the middle bar in iMovie.
4. It should recognize the video information you have plugged in at this point. If it doesn't, in the bottom of the import window, see if you can select a camera from the drop down list next to where it says "camera" in the bottom left.

I was told by the tech support people that I need to update my Final Cut Express software in order to read the video files, however I think they're wrong because I'm pretty sure I have the newest version. I also just found this information on Apple's website useful (see the video entitled "Built in AVCHD"): http://www.apple.com/finalcutexpress/ If you're using Final Cut Express 4, go to File -> Log & Transfer (or hit SHIFT + COMMAND + 8 on your keyboard) and if your camera/memory stick is plugged in, it should show a list of your files right there. Much better than iMovie.

Here is some information on the stuff I am using if it's useful:

iMovie '08 version 7.1.4
Final Cut Express 4 version 4.0.1
Canon HF 100 Digital HD Camcorder
Mac OS X Leopard Version 10.5.6

Hope this is helpful. I doubt that I will check back to this forum, so please email any questions you might have (I may or may not be able to answer) to bbaumgar@ucsd.edu. I would recommend, assuming you have a Mac, going out and buying iMovie '09 ($39 - $79 depending where you buy it), Final Cut Express ($100 - $300 depending where you buy it), or Final Cut Studio 2 ($400 - $1200 depending where you buy it) before spending money on another software that won't let you do as much. The Imagemixer 3 software that your camera came with is supposed to let you basically do the same things, but doesn't work on Mac. It looks like you can buy the Mac version from Pixela...but I would encourage you to contact Canon or Pixela support first and demand a free one, since you paid so much for the camcorder and should be entitled to the software.

Canon tech support was pretty useful as well: 1-800-828-4040. I only had to wait about 5 minutes. (The total call was around 15 mins).

Good luck.
