Sony Digital Handycam
I have a Sony Digital Handycam DCR-pc105 and am trying to connect to my iMac. Any suggestions?

The iMac is running OSX 10.5.7.

As with any miniDV tape camcorder (except for a slightly higher with a connector JLIP JVCs funky), connecting the camcorder to a computer for transferring DV video quality on digital tape format means using a Firewire cable. See DV camcorder manual to locate the port: View http://www.docs.sony.com/release/DCRPC105.pdf page 85, 97 and 161. i.LINK, Firewire, IEEE1394 and DV – in this context – are all the same thing. Since you did not tell us which iMac do not know if you need a 4-pin to 6 pin or 4-pin to 9-pin firewire cable. The Video Camera DV port is always 4-pin. When the camcorder is connected to the iMac with a firewire cable, turn on the camcorder – And must be in "VCR" (check the power switch position.) When you start iMovie, blue "Camcorder connected" should display appear – click on Import … If you choose to record "movie in MPEG format" using the memory card, keep in mind this is the low quality video. (See page 133.) It is likely that this can be transferred to the iMac via USB, but you have to copy files to the iMac, convert (using Streamclip) http://www.apple.com/downloads/macosx/ video / mpegstreamclip.html then drag them to iMovie. Do not tell us what version of iMovie you are using – it is possible that you can skip this step. It is possible that this will cause problems (using the camcorder as a card reader) – It may be easier to get only one card reader (the latter I bought at Fry was about $ 5) and take the memory stick from the camcorder and place it in the card reader connected to the iMac via USB – and video copy of the memory device for the Mac that way.
