Thunderbolt and Canon video record and transfer?
on Sep 17, 2013 at 10:00:55 pm

Hi all,

I had a HV-40 camcorder which I used with Quicktime Pro 7 to instantly record and file video via a DV/Firewire cable to my iMac.

The camera broke and I got a new iMac with only Thunderbolt and USB inputs.

I would like to have a quick and easy method of recording onto my iMac like I did with the HV-40 and Quicktime Pro 7.

I've asked a lot of different people at both Apple, Canon and B&H.

All they can tell me is my best bet is to get a:

Canon HFM52

HDMI to Thunderbolt converter box

A software for the converter box?

Can anyone recommend a good camera (if this one isn't the best)A good converter box/ software for instantly getting the video files onto my computer?

The camera must be able to zoom so web cams are out of the equation.

The more user friendly/ fast this process can be the better, will be transferring large amounts of video very quickly.

Thank you!

Just get the thunderbolt to Firewire adapter from Apple or other 3rd parties. Note that the adapter is FW800 so you will need a firewire cable that has the mini FW400 on one end for your Canon HV40 and the other end is FW800. I have a Canon HV20 and it works just fine with my iMac 2013 thunderbolt ports.
