    Must use IEEE 1394?


      I'm looking at purchasing a Panasonic HDC-SD90K hi def camcorder.  It does not have an IEEE 1394 connector; it has a USB 2 connector.  In reading the online material for Premiere Elements 10, I came across the following:


      "HDV camcorder: Connect your HDV camcorder to your computer’s IEEE 1394 port using an IEEE 1394 cable. You cannot capture HDV using USB ports."


      Does this mean I cannot buy this camcorder, or I cannot use Premier Elements 10?


      (My iMac has IEEE1394 "Firewire" ports and USB 2 ports.)
