HD-capable cameras allow for increased image quality while using iMovie.
iMovie allows users to edit, add and organize their movie library. While all digital camcorders work well with iMovie, there are some that make it particularly easy to transfer movies and capture videos. An ideal digital camcorder will minimize the need for users to edit a video for lighting, color and picture quality.
Built with a flash memory drive, the Canon FS300 captures video using its DIGIC DV II image processor to help users capture the best possible image. It’s 680,000-pixel CCD image sensor allows users to capture smooth images, adding texture and life to each image. What makes the camera perfect for iMovie is its removable Secure Digital card, which can easily transfer videos onto iMovie via the SD card slot on all Mac models made after 2009.
Flip Video UltraHD
The Flip Video UltraHD allows users to capture video in high-definition, allowing users to reproduce videos in 1,280-by-720-pixel resolution. The Flip captures 30 frames per second, allowing users to capture, share and enjoy movies without a choppy image. Since the Flip uses a USB connection, users can transfer video onto iMovie’s software via a USB connection and enjoy HD-quality imaging.
Canon VIXIA HF R100 HD Flash Memory Camcorder
Canon’s HD flash camcorder features face detection and image stabilization that complements iMovie’s key features of editing video. With image stabilization, users will not need to edit their videos as much on iMovie, making the Canon HF R100 one of the best camcorders for the software. In addition to image stabilization, users will capture video using Canon’s 2.39-megapixel HD CMOS image sensor, which allows users to see every detail while using iMovie.
