Transferring videos from MV600i (Mini DV) to Macbook Pro...?

Hello all, 

 

This is my first post to the forum, and I hope you can help me out. 

 

About ten years ago, I did a series of interviews for my PhD on my MV600i camcorder. I'm hoping to transfer these interviews onto my Macbook Pro laptop so I can back them up in Dropbox, and also edit them for future use. Can anyone please tell me:

 

*is it as simple as plugging in a MiniDV to USB cable into the laptop, or do I need to buy some other interface as well? 

*if I do need another piece of hardware, could someone please briefly steer me in the right direction?

 

Thanks a lot for your help!

 

Regards,

Andrew Harrison

Greetings,

I used to have one of these back in the day.  Great Camera!  The answer to your question is yes.  I do al of my workflow in Windows, but support Macs as well. iMovie supports import from tape based cameras.

Shouldn't be an issue if you have a FW port on your laptop.
