Ask Max: Is there a HD camcorder that offers the best OS X compatibility?

Asked on 07/13/2009:

Hi Jacob,

I just wanna know your opinion about HD camcorders & Mac OS compatibility. I'm looking for one but i don't know if there's a (best choice for) Mac OS X? The brands of camcorders that I see (are): Sony, Panasonic, (&) Cannon... Please let me know your opinion of compatibility and performance.

Panasonic and Cannon do a great job in producing Mac computer compatible HD camcorders. Take a look at the Canon VIXIA HF11 Camcorder or the VIXIA HG20 60GB HDD Camcorder. Both could be good choices for you.

One thing to consider though, still image cameras are quickly adding HD video capture to their feature set. If you are also interested in picking up a good still camera, one of those hybrid cameras may be your best choice. The Panasonic LUMIX DMC-GH1 was recently announced and it has video people and photographers equally excited.
