ZR700 as iBook webcam

in Current Mac Hardware edited January 2014
OK, so my ZR700 Canon camcorder beat my Mac Pro here. I've been testing it out with my iBook - 5 sec video clips, etc.

Anyhow, I hooked it up via Firewire, and iChat recognized it as a webcam, but dropped frames or lagged like mad. It was A LOT less choppy on the ZR700's screen than it was on the iBook. I used 320x240 and 160x120 resolutions. Is this the iBook's fault, or the camera's fault?
