    would like to record live video from a Sony 8mm HD video camera via "firewire," Apple's iMovie appears to allow recording from only the "face time" camera

    Welcome to iMore.

    iMovie will allow you to use your video camera to record. I do it with my JVC video camera. Turn on your camera and open iMovie. Go to File>Import Media. A new window will open. Under Cameras in the top left side your camera should be showing. Screenshots provided. Here is a guide by Apple if iMovie doesn't recognize or control your camera or camcorder.
