    it's actually really simple ... and I just had to figure this out recently myself after upgrading my IMAC. You just need a THUNDERBOLT to FIREWIRE adapter from Apple. I picked one up for $29.00 So, connect the new adapter to your iMAC ... connect the Firewire to the new adapter and the other end to your Canon HV30 (or camcorder with a DV output).

    Just a heads up ... the end of the Thunderbolt adapter is a 9-pin Firewire (Firewire 800). You will need a 9-pin to 4-pin Firewire cable.
