Need Mac recommendation for Canon HV30
Hi folks. I got some old equipment and need to start thinking about upgrading.
I have a Canon HV30 camcorder. I love this camera, it still works, so I have no desire (or money) to buy a new one.
But, my 2010 Macbook pro is getting very long in the tooth. He's already had his battery removed, and he's quite sluggish with the latest browsers and other software.
My concern is this: If I buy a new Macbook, complete with the lightning ports (or whatever they're called), will I be able to capture video from this 11yo camera with a FW800 adaptor? Is the iMovie software compatible with it? Or, is there some workaround I'd need to pursue to capture video without just holding on to my ancient laptop?
Thank you much.
