Question about Sony Handycam DCR-HC40E Mini DV Digital Camcorder
How can i plug Sony DCRHC40E with Mac OS
According to the specifications listed on FixYa, this camcorder has an iLink port (also known as Firewire or IEEE1394). Apple computers have long supported Firewire--indeed, it was the original connection type for the iPod.
I'm assuming you're using a relatively recent version of OS X, say 10.3 or later.
There are two sizes of Firewire socket, and you'll need a cable that suits your devices. The socket on your camera will be the small, square-ish type; compare this to the one on your Mac. If the socket on your Mac is bigger, you'll need a "4-pin to 6-pin Firewire cable"; if not, you'll need a "4-pin to 4-pin Firewire cable". More details on Firewire, including photos of plugs and sockets, are on Wikipedia at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Firewire
Once connected, you should be able to use Apple iMovie, Final Cut Express, or similar to capture and edit your footage.
