webcam for mac/iMovie

  dan1611 21:10 09 Jan 2011

Sorry if this has been hashed out before. My daughter has a Powerbook G4 Operating system Tiger 10.4.11. She wants a webcam but needs one which can be used with iMovies. We understand she can't use a normal USB and need a Firewire webcam,iSight camera.
Want we want to know is can the camera be used with other applications other than iMovies and will an isight camera for example be compatible with her Mac.
Also any tips or suggestions as to which camera would be best would be great. She wants this camera for recording videos, songs etc.Thanks

Hi,thanks for your referral, having checked out the link it looks like the requirements don't quite fit with my daughter's specs, namely, it requires;
Mac OS® X 10.5 or higher.

Also we have found out that in order to use iMovie we need a firewire cable rather than USB.

So we' keep this open to see if there's any other suggestions.
