So I am shopping for a new camera that preferably can double as a web cam for my mac. Well i come to find out that i am going to need a fire wire port but some people are telling me it doesn't matter. So go on to purchase this beast AVCHD and night vision (very cool). When I realize that the dang thing won't work as a web cam. So i am just giving a PSA to anyone I have yet to try it on my HP touch so I will try that soon. Any one have suggestions if so please feel free to comment below.
