Panasonic HDS-HS9 crashes imovie


Just bought this sweet camera, the retailer had it on display using imovie. I get the thing home and when I tried to import video, imovie gives the old "unexpected shut-down" prompt. Was I duped? My old JVC DV camera works like a champ still.


Search the forums for the HDC-SD9 (essentially the same camera without the hard drive) to find a few large threads on this topic (although for some reason they are being locked). In summary, it doesn't work. You need 3rd party software (VoltaicHD) to covert the source files into files that are playable in iMovie/Final Cut.
