My Sony HC96 was stolen from my car. I now have the problem of how do I edit my old mini-DV tapes or import them into my MacBook? I recall that the HC96 was filming in 'widescreen' - not sure if this was strictly 'true widescreen' or not. Do I need to get the same camcorder exactly to import my old tapes (not many around on Ebay). Will any mini-DV camcorder (even non-Sony's) playback and retain the 'widescreen' effect. I was using iMovie 6 HD on Mac in 16:9 format when importing. Sorry for essay.
