You don't have any documentation with your camera? How are you going to operate it without any instructions?

I am not familiar with Mac requirements for P2 - but if you don't have any software on Mac, it won't work. Try going to the link I provide and download the Mac software and try. Or maybe some other experts who uses Mac can chip in and help you out.

What NLE are you using on your iMac? FCP?
