Are you transferring from cassette to memory card and then to Imac? certainly there is software supported by Imac to accomplish this. You can convert your videos to MPEG format using Imagemixer then try uploading with another program. Imac and OSX should have websites that list compatible software.

Cyber-shot DSC-TX7 is a new camera by Sony for consumers to shoot 1920x1080i and 1440x1080i AVCHD videos in .mts format. The camera also includes MP4 output, but only with 1440x1080p, 1280x720p and 640x480p resolution. To get HD 1920x1080 videos, the output videos is .mts as file extension. This format provides high definition videos, but is recorded with interlacing artifacts.
However, to play Sony TX7 camera AVCHD videos on big-screen iMac smoothly, I need HD video converter for Mac. I find Aunsoft MTS/M2TS Converter for Mac as the perfect Sony TX7 MTS to MOV Converter on Mac OS X to handle my movies. With this Sony to MOV converter, I can show my recent trip to my relatives and friends from iMac, sharing the joy and experiences.

After transferring Sony DSC-TX7 AVCHD videos to Apple iMac hard drive, run Aunsoft MTS/M2TS Converter for Mac as Sony MTS converter and click the "Add" button to load .mts videos.
Step 2. Choose H.264 output format.
Click the "Format" option and choose HD Video > H.264 HD Video(*.mov) as output format. The Mac Sony TX7 MTS to MOV converter will transcode 1080i .mts videos to 1080p .mov for QuickTime on Mac.

Tips: You can also choose the .mp4 output format for playback on iMac, as QuickTime Player supports .mp4 videos.
Step 3. Convert Sony TX7 AVCHD to MOV.
Click the convert button under the preview window, and the Mac Sony MTS converter starts converting Sony DSC-TX7 MTS to MOV in full HD 1920x1080.

Hello, could you advice where I could purchase Panasonic NV-GS150 DV Camera MAC OSX 10.5 Support? I cannot connect my Panasonic NV-GS150 DV camera with my MacBook Pro. Thanks a lot for your help!...

Panasonic usually includes the Mac software program "Imagemixer 3" that imports the videos/photos you have on your camera. If the software isn't included with your camera, try Googling around for the program and it should come right up! I hope this helps. - Omn1cide

Need assistance transferring video to imac

The Panasonic PV-GS12 will transfer video in video record mode and video playback mode using the DV connection (IEEE) Firewire port. PC Mode is restricted to memory card access via USB. If after connecting it in this manner if it does not work try this. With everything connected via firewire and iMovie running. switch the camera to PC mode and the import window should pop up. You may get a comunications error and if you do then switch to playback mode. The import window should stay open and you can control your camera with the iMovie controls.

Transfering video clips?

Make sure you're using a program that recognizes video files. iPhoto, for example, doesn't. iMovie does.
