Question about Panasonic AG-185 Camcorder
I recently received a Panasonic PV-GS70 digital camcorder/camera. The software that came with is for PC...and I can't download anything into my Mac. I'm using Final Cut Pro and the I-Movie programs without success. Help? Panasonic told me to try firewire (I did, no luck) or the USB import (no luck)...and now says I need a second-party vendor software...but won't tell me what software. Thanks....

I use a DV camera that is not on Apple's "compatibility" list. (It should REALLY be noted that Apple sells camcorders in it's on-line store that aren't listed as compatible!) Depending on which software package you are using, including version, results may vary. I too had a fairly confusing frustration the first time out, but here's Jeffe's notes: FireWire! (USB is not for video). Start with iMovie: (FinalCut is higher-end, and thus is more picky about what it will take.) launch the application, then plug in the powered-on camera set to it's "play" (VCR etc.) setting (as opposed to camera setting.) If iMovie STILL does not see the camera, then I'd start to worry about compatibility, and contact an Apple SPECIFIC retailer (not a chain, like CompUSA etc.) for help. BTW: Nice Camera! Let me know if it works out. I was contemplating Panasonic for my next camera.
