Summary: I was looking forward to using this highly rated camera for taking video of our new son. Unfortunately, the camera tape mechanism went out after the first 4 months and I had to send the camera to Illinois to be repaired, and also to get the tape out of the camera. The camera was out for 6 weeks. The refurbished camera lasted approx. 6 more months, sent it back again and this time it cost me $168 to have it refurbished.
Summary: I recently bought this camera through this website. After extensive research, I was won over by the other review here that tells of the ease of use with Macs iMovies because we were planning to purchase a new iMac. Well, the new computer is here and after several days of frustration I have learned that this camera will only import video to macs with OS X 10.1-10.3. Lo and Behold all new iMacs are loaded with OS X 10.4 and this Camera is totally unable to communicate.
