Hi,
You can capture 1080i50 in the DVC-Pro HD codec or HDV over firewire. I believe the Apple intermediate codec requires faster drives/transfer speeds and a capture card. As for uncompressed SD, if you're talking about Digibeta, you need a Decklink or Kona card for that so no, not on a Macbook. You can capture the Digibeta material witth the right deck, but it won't be "uncompressed", it'll be DV25. If you're talking about DV as in DVCam or DVC-Pro (25 or 50), yes, you can capture that via firewire.
