If you are talking about Infa-Red, and are a little handy with small tools, you can convert a cheep used camcorder yourself.
All digital camers are senisitve to IR. In fact in order to get a good quality normal picture, they have to have a filter installed between the lens and the sensor just to get rid of it. go to:
www.metacafe.com They have instructions on how to DYI, or there is a list of places that will do it for you. One suggestion, get a camcorder that has the lowest light capibilities 1 LUX or .o3 lux. You will need to get a natural light filter to put on the front of the lens- if you can't follow the DIY on the website. It works...I did it myself..You may also want an IR light for the camera to cover large areas, but I believe using the same filter that's on the site would work as well. let me know

Do you want to batch process camcorder footage such as AVCHD MTS/M2TS files at one time? Or you may want to make some basic editing like joining, cutting and then output the movies for different usage. The guide introduces who to <b><a href="http://www.aunsoft.com/batch_manage_camcorder_avchd_mts_m2ts_footage_at_one_time_on_mac_os_x/">batch handle AVCHD MTS/M2TS footage at one time</a></b>, one for lossless output, the other for transcoding to other formats. <br /><br /><b>Featured Camcorder Software for Mac</b> <br /><br /><b><a href="http://www.aunsoft.com/final-mate-mac/">Aunsoft Final Mate for Mac</a></b>, the ultimate camcorder companion for Mac users, help capture AVCHD footage from camcorder, edit MTS/M2TS files on Timeline, lossless output your memories or convert to other Mac friendly formats, such as Apple ProRes 422 Codec or AIC. <br /> <br /><b>How to <a href="http://www.aunsoft.com/final-mate-mac/">Batch Process AVCHD Footage on Mac</a> with Final Mate for Mac? </b>Please follow the step by step guide below. <br /><br />Step 1: <b>Free Download AVCHD camcorder software for Mac</b>. <br /><br />First of all, free download trial version of <b><a href="http://membercenter.aunsoft.com/download/?s=8ab8a5878beb4005ec26373a35a4fd24&n=www.aunsoft.com/final-mate-mac/">Final Mate for Mac</a></b> and then install the software on your Mac computer. You can launch the app from Application folder. <br /><br />Step 2: <b>Import AVCHD MTS/M2TS files</b>. <br />There are two ways for you to add AVCHD footage to Final Mate for Mac. The first way is to import files from camcorder, the other is from computer. <br /><br />- Import AVCHD MTS/M2TS files from camcorder to the program <br />If you haven't copies your AVCHD footage to your computer, you can directly connect your camcorder to your Mac machine and launch Final Mate for Mac to capture AVCHD footage. Follow included camcorder wizard to easily transfer MTS.M2TS videos to the program. Imported videos will be listed in Camcorder Tab of Final Mate for Mac main interface. <br /> <br />- Import AVCHD MTS/M2TS files from computer to the program <br />Or you can add AVCHD footage from your computer.

We would like to import footage from the Panasonic NV-GS 400 digital video camera onto a MAC - is this possible


Yes, you can transfer the videos from the Camcorder to the Mac Computer.

Connect the Camcorder to the Mac Computer using i.LINK/Firewire or USB cable.

I suggest that you use the i.LINK/Firewire cable to connect it to the Computer. The i.LINK port is also called IEEE 1394 or Firewire port. An i.LINK is a black D shaped connector with 4 or 6 pins. The type of cable to be used will depend on the i.LINK port of your Computer.

After connecting the Camcorder to the Mac Computer, open the iMovie Application to capture the Videos from the Camcorder and follow the on-screen instruction to complete the transfer of the videos.


Good Luck!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I have a panasonic digital filming camera the NV GS60 and even though it isnt the best program i just want to upload the footage onto windows movie maker how do i do this?


Hi, I believe that camera comes with a firewire cable. Does your computer have that? If so, just connect the camcorder to your computer and power on the camera. Your Operating system should recognize it. Then open MS moviemaker. You can control what footage you want to capture from within moviemaker. It is timeconsuming and requires quite a bit of free disk space as the imported files can get rather large and hard to work with once they are over 1GB.

However, people are not giving a high credit for this camcorder.
