Question about Panasonic Video Cameras
I am an investigator and uses the panasonic sdr-h80 and a macbook. My intent was to purchase the mac and the camcorder so that I would not have to purchase tapes and would be able to upload video quick and easy into my imovie. However, I am bale to upload just find but I need the time date stamp to show in the video that Is uploaded into imovie so that I can burn that onto a dvd for clients. I am not sure if it is something in the camcorder that needs to be set so that once it is uploaded to imovie that the time date stamps shows in imovie or if it is a setting on imovie that allows the time date stamp to show once the video is uploaded. I just need to be able to upload video that I obtain during surveillance, upload into computer then burn onto a DVD so that I can provide to clients. But the time date stamp must show. Can anyone help with this issue. Thank You,

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: DAte/Time stamp
I was having the same problem, and was tasked to find a solution at work.
I ended finding talking with a developer who wrote a custom utility that can extract the time/date data from the .MPG (it's hidden in there somewhere) as a special txt file.
Here's a link to that utility: (special version for NTSC footage):

Then you import that file into a piece of software called DVSubmaker which will convert that data in a special format (.sub) used by certain DVD/Video players to display subtitles.
Here's the best 2 options for playback:
1. Windows Media Player (need Mpeg2 codec) combined with a plugin called Vobsub - Free:)
2. ZoomPlayer (DVD Software) - $60
So in a nutshell, your displaying the original time/date stamp as subtitles on top of the video.
Contact me if you have any troubles.

If the date and time appear during playback to a television from the camcorder, we discovered that the date and time stamp can be recorded during playback through a DVD Recorder.
