How do I transfer videos from Sony Handycam to MacBook Pro?

My understanding is that the camera and mac laptop are not compatible but thought someone might have another idea or "work around" to make the transfer a possibility.

Thank you for the link! I'll have to check into that but while I do any other ideas, possibly less expensive (working with a very small budget)? Thanks!

it is quite possible that attaching the camera to your Mac, settling it to play and firing up iMovie 11, would produce a result.
