I don't think that it will just "show up" on the mac. If you are running iMovie, then it will appear in iMovie as an external camera, and will let you transfer video into iMovie.
Try running iMovie, and let us know if it works for you there.

Mac External Connection


Easy, FireWire.
Connect the 2 with a firewire cable. If reading off the laptop, for example, reboot it & hold the T key down while it boots up. A large firewire symbol shows on the screen indicating FireWire Target Mode. The laptop should be showing up as a firewire drive on the other Mac.

Firewire problem


this sounds like you could have blown the firewire port on the mac, this can happen if you plug in and out, even though it is supposed to be hot swappable. if nothing shows up on the firewire port but does show up on other ports on other computers then that could be the problem. its back to base with apple for a repair.

Does canonZR950 have a DV- In ? (Is a DV port always a I/O port)


This is incredible - I didn't know such a thing existed - but it does appear that the DV port on that camcorder is bidirectional, so it will serve as an input when connect to a source with a DV out. Very nice!

A lot, of course, will also depend on your endoscopic camera. I have seen endoscopic cams that would definitely be compatible with your Canon. But I saw a particular JVC endoscopic cam that would not be compatible. What is the model/manufacturer of the endoscopic cam?

Here is a copy of the manual for the Canon:

Camcorder importing - no manual


This is the same unit I have. Simply connect a 4-pin to 4-pin Firewire cable between the computer and the camera. (Port is under the lens, under a smal rubber cap. Once the connection is made, turn on the camera, and it should appear on your mac as a new fixed drive. Import your files normally from there.

Hope this helps!

Firewire 800 cable


No such thing s a dumb question, I transfer from my Canon XL1 to my Mac IBook with firewire all the time. You have three choices: 1. Buy a cable with two different ends - one that will fit your camera (the tiny one so small it is hard to insert) and one that will fit the Mac. Your Mac should have two different types of firewire ports - the semi-round one and the square one that looks like a USB port, but isn't. The symbols are different  for firewire ports firewire and USB ports. But all firewire ports, regardless of the configuration will have the firewire symbol and all USB ports will have the USB symbol.  Either firewire symbol port will work. I have two different firewire ports on my MacBook G4 and use them both,  I keep a bunch of firewire connectors around. They usually come with outboard hard-drives in various configurations. Sold en Ebay or at computer stores Solution 2: Feed your firewire through an outboard drive that will accept the 400 firewire (many do) and then take another firewire, say an 800, from that drive into your computer. I always capture to a hard drive then edit from there. The idea of a firewire bus is that you can connect a number of drives in parallel and mount them all. Available for as little as $69.
Solution 3: Buy a firewire port card for you MacBook which slips into a slot on the side, and gives you connectivity with the 400. It also frees up your main firewire port. I bought one on Ebay for $24 that came with all the adaptors. I was pulling my hair out too until I figured out the system.
