I have made a typical, noob error. Specifically, my mates are amateur film makers, my father used to work for a film production company and for many years, I've been itching to give it a try.
So I thought I'd buy a cheap-as-chips used camera to play around, make mistakes, see if I could like it. I therefore bought a used, cheap, Canon XM2 which was great until I tried to attach it to my MacBook. Which does not have firewire. Doh!
I made the fatal assumption that I could simply attach a camera to pretty much any Mac but I am now experiencing the error of my ways and I feel like a really, dumb gorilla.
Is there a workaround without having to re-eBay the camera or buy a ProBook?
