Mac and Sony DCRHC40

It is official my Canon camcorder died.

Has anyone used this or other Sony models with a Mac? I had heard that the Sony's used a non-compliant Firewire implementation but that was a while ago so....?

Also other suggestions are welcome but I am looking at this for the high actual res (680K vs 280K on my Canon) and analog to digital conversion (needed for helmet cam). It is a bit more than I wanted to spend also so go lower in $$$ on suggestions

Thanks

EDIT: Other non-Mac viewers, any comment on the Sony is welcome also

Re: Mac and Sony DCRHC40

Not sure why the high resolution, most of the bullet cams for helmets only shoot at 420 to 480 lines of resolution. Canon or Sony are the only two that I would consider because of ccd quality and image stabilization. I own a Mac but since I'm a linux freak the mac usually stays in the garage.

I want the higher res for when I am using it in regular mode. The Sony's and Canon's have the right features for helmet camming. My last Canon kind of soured me though

I will jack my own thread and ask why. On OS X you can run most linux stuff in a root less X session and still have the features of a Mac. Just curious

Re: Mac and Sony DCRHC40

Keep in mind this is just my opinion but I really dislike the way a Mac uses memory and resources. For a machine that is supposed to be very stable I have two and they both crash on a regular basis when doing graphic work with them. My linux box hasn't even been rebooted in a year. Is the best at managing memory and resources and all the software that I use is free without any piracy. Since I run all my online servers with the same OS it also keeps me up to date on changes for security.
