camcorder includes the Canon HF S series and Panasonic HDC-TM series. This assumes your version of iMovie is at least '08... or you are willing to pony up for FinalCut Express 4 which works great with AVCHD/MTS camcorders. Moving up to the current version of iLife so you can get to the newest iMovie version would be worth it...

The MacBook Pro has a firewire port, so that means you get to add the Canon HV40 and Sony HDR-HC9 to your list.
