James, please can you or anyone help. I have been looking to purchase either the Canon HG21 or the Canon HF10. I want edit movies using imovie on my new iMac. I am confused by the following statement i read on a review for the HG21 as pasted below. My question is. Can I edit hd quality using a progressive scan mode on the HF10 when using imovie 08 or 09? (i.e do i need 30p which the HF10 appears not to have)and which camcorder should I go with for best results?

"Canon Vixia HG21The 24p Cinema Mode is what you would use if you want your video to have a movie theater-like feel, and in many instances, I think that 24p is enough for general use. But as it turns out, it’s a good thing that the HG21 has 30p support, because iMovie 󈥩 () disappointingly lacks support for 24p. If you want the 24p look, you need a video editing program like Final Cut Pro (). If you simply want to shoot using progressive scan video (and I suggest you do), you can use 30p with iMovie."

Thank you
