What leads do I need to connect my Panasonic NV-GS30

There is an optional cable available for your camera called the VW-CD1E that will make use of the firewire (DV) port on your camera. You will also need to have some sort of a video capture program like Adobe Premiere so that you can download the video from your camera and then edit or display it. You should be able to order the cable from any Panasonic retailer. The better electronic / video stores will probably have it in stock.
