Now the problem is, what software to use to transfer the videos into my laptop? hmm


Doesn't it comes with software bundle?

if no, then u can use the most basic Window Movie maker, else you can use Ulead Video, Pinnacle or Sony Vega.

For hardware, u need to have firewire capability on your comp (cable + port). Don't even think about USB. it won't work as you would expect. Well since its all wrapped up, u can figure it out after xmas. give to ur gf for xmas gift, then take it back from her say u wang to play with it. lol

wow, looks good. is the 3CCD? does it r/w DVDRAM? i heard transfer rate quite slow when copy into PC. but once you get it into your notebook thru the USB Video cable you can manupulate the image howver you like, that's very convenient. It doesn't do CD-R? and only use 8cm? you sending the package back to your gf in kuching issit? if not, now 38 days to Xmas you could unpackage it and wrapback. it's only paper & tape. no one will know. unless she browsing here too

It's not 3CCD, I've tried 3CCD and mine (1CCD) prosumer camera and the recordings quality is not much of an obvious. Unless you want to step to the next level, then it will make a lot of difference.

So for entry level prosumer DV these features makes not much of a difference in quality. No, it;s not DVD.

It comes with the firewire and USB but doest come with software.

So why firewire is better than USB? And why is the USB not going to work?

Do you think the Windoew's bacis movie maker is up to task?

My gf is here, and I took me almost one hour to wrap it, I won't want to do it again, lol, so let's just wait

So why firewire is better than USB? And why is the USB not going to work?


one good reason is that firewire is so much faster than usb.

For what i experienced, if you use USB, you can only get a maximum quality out of your mini DV. the maximum quality may be a lousy compressed 600 x 400 px video. I don't know what that happen, but when i first got my sony miniDV, i use the firewire and I can't figure out how to get the same quality as I plug in the miniDV directly to the TV!

I tried extracting the video from the tape to my computer through USB. All turn out like crap. I tried all sorts of software i mentioned earlier.

So i start to do some research on the net. "GET A FIREWIRE"
and so I did.

As soon as i plug in the firewire, i see new options clickable and selectable on 3rd party softwares. thats when my problem ends.
One hour mini dv tape may output to a 30-60 gb video file.

You need to render the 30gb file into a 4GB DVD. Normally I would leave my comp on overnight just to do the rendering.

I don't know for your case, maybe you got a newer version and different model of miniDV, and u might not get the same problem as i did. . let me know when u do.

Resuree, I think that is it, but I am not very sure, but that is one heck of a list features god dammit! LOL but some of the specs are not the same, such as mine has a mic input, and a 1000x digital zoom, not 30x and etc.

Btw webbie, 30-40gb is damn huge LOL. So when we initially burn them into DVD compressing from 30-40gb down to 4gb does that degrades the quality?

I am pretty sure I am gonna use the firewire then LOL

And, what is the difference between the SP and LP recording mode? What does that stands for?

Thats the highest quality you can get for miniDV tape.
I never expect it would be that big either. but you can set the output setting to something minimal.

when u burn to dvd, all you get is DVD quality. thats all i can explain. like when u buy original hollywood dvd movies.

For the SP and LP mode. i still not sure how to use it.
normally i would use the default SP mode.

still cannot understand, but a normal recording should be in SP mode up to 60mins of recording, while a LP mode will record up to 90minute?
