Summary: Two comments. If your computer is a MAC, it is almost impossible to transfer movies from the camcorder to the MAC. I just spoke with an Apple rep. Needless to say, I am extremely disappointed. (If I were to rate this product, it would be 1 star.) I have yet to see my movie on my computer. As for the second comment, save the money on the HDMI cord. I just purchased one. I connected the camcorder to the TV using the cable but I was unable to see the movie.
