5.0 out of 5 stars Works with Mac, June 11, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Sony HDRPJ260V High Definition Handycam 8.9 MP Camcorder with 30x Optical Zoom, 16 GB Embedded Memory and Built-in Projector (2012 Model) (Electronics)
I got this camcorder to record my son's basketball games and it works very well. Contrary to some reviews on here it does work with Mac. HD and Standard Video (I also import video on my PC as well). Two things you must do for MAC:

1. Import using IMovie (Does not import into Iphoto like other camcorders).
2. Must not have both Standard and HD video on camera as it confuses the MAC and only the STD video shows up.

The camera's projection screen is awesome and it's very clear and projects the video so well. This is an amazing
feature that really is what 2012 technology should be able to afford us. Overall, this camera is top quality video and it's very easy to use and is extremely small and fits right in your hand. I like it a lot.

You can use internal memory 16GB and then buy a memory card (32gb) for additonal video storage (you can easily toggle between the two memory sources in the menu of the camera). Nice touch and feature.

Can you please tell me one thing about this camcorder? You spoke of toggling between the internal memory and a memory card. So if I am filming and run out of memory, do I need to stop filming and go to the menu in order to access the 32gb memory card?

yeah you would have to stop camera and then go to menu to select memory card...should take only 2-3 seconds though.

I'm reading different perspectives about compatibility with the Mac and iMovie. Does the native video format behave nicely with iMovie editing or is a format conversion needed first? I've heard of users needing Handbrake to convert the video format to something more Mac friendly.

Works fine with Imovie...HD and STD. No need to use Handbrake.

You are right on #2, but I think it only works on newer/newest iMovie. I am sure it didn't work with iMovie pre-iLife 2011, even when there are only HD clips in the camera.
I just upgraded iMovie and iPhoto to the latest version, and iPhoto can actually import HD clips FYI.
