To give credit where credit is due. I tried the Sony Chat (which by the way is the greatest thing to ever happen to customer service) and got another person who gave me the right answer.
This camera uses the mpeg-2 format. Apple has a $20 download that coverts to Quicktime automatically. All good now :-)
Ok, this has nothing to do with my topic of Email Marking, but I'm so angry. I use a Mac. I want to do more video blogging. Went out to buy a camcorder with a hard drive. Read the reviews and came home with a fantastic looking Sony DCR-SR80.
Took about 15 hours of video with it. Plug it in to learn that it's not compatible with a Mac???
If I want I can buy third party software. Deep on page 21 in the manual is a site that will sell to me for an addtional $153.
