Question about Sony Handycam DCR-HC20 Mini DV Digital Camcorder
All the Sony cameras I have had have allowed me to include material from my older VHS films by using the camera as a bridge to my computer via a firewire. (I have been making films for 50 years. First on 8mm cine.) My digital8 camera which was ideal for this failed so I bought a new Sony DCR-HC20E,the E presumably meaning Europe. The instruction booklet had a page especially for this model with the heading"Recording pictures from a VCR(DCR-H20E)". I have spent hours following the instuctions to the letter and cannot get the comera to play ball. I cannot even get anything on the camera screen from the VCR. I could certainly do with help on this.
If you are based in America definitely you will not be able to use that European standard camera, they are not compatible standards. Playback and passing the USA standard video through that camera is not possible. ( some will give black and white, jittery video output). I assume you already know the difference between European and American video standards. [:0)
