I have a Canon HV30 and a PC and the results I get are fantastic. This christmas I would like to get my son a HD camcorder that will work with his Mac ( I know little about Macs ). I have heard that some Cams wont work with Macs? Cam Not recognized when connected or the AVCHD is not supported? Anyway I know his Mac is one with a 27 inch Display core i5 intel processor, has SD/SDHC card slot , Radeon HD 4850 graphic card and latest mac os. Can any of you Mac guys recommend a consumer 3 mos panasonic or similar canon for around £400 - £600 uk currency that you know for a fact will work when teamed with the mac for editing/burning/saving the file etc. I hope this is posted in the correct place. I really need help as the salesmen in the stores dont have a clue.
