Does anyone know if I can convert old Hi8 tapes via this Sony camcorder's Firewire port into a 2011 iMAC? I know the camcorder will convert the analog tape into digital format but I am concerned that my iMAC won't recognize the data. I read someone else tried this with an older OS and couldn't get the 2 to talk.
My alternate approach was to use the Canopus 110 hardware but I would prefer to use a Digital 8 camcorder and get a useful camera out of it.
I have not yet purchased the camcorder but do own the iMAC with Lion 10.8
