Analog Camcorder to a new IMAC....How?

I just bought a new IMAC today and am wondering if anyone knows where I can buy a cable that will allow me to hook up my analog camcorder (Video, L and R audio) and feed the signal into my IMAC so that I make DVDs from the analog signal. I saw something like this at CompUSA for PCs but nothing for the Macs. If anyone has any recommendations or any ideas I would appreciate some advice. I am new to the world of Macs. Thanks.

You need an analog/DV converter, since the iMac has firewire inputs. Dazzle makes one for about $200, but I've heard mixed things about it. If you're going to be doing a lot of transferring, you should probably spend the extra $100 and get something nice like the Canopus ADVC-100.
