Question about Canon ZR850 Mini DV Digital Camcorder

1 Answer

Do I need a 4pin-4pin DV cable or a 4pin - 6p -with Canon MV 850i

I have a Canon MV 850 i camcorder and I'm trying to convert analogue tape to digital for saving to PC.

I know I need a DV cable CV-250F, however, I don't know whether it's 4pin-4pin or 4pin-6pin cable that I need. The camera, I'm pretty sure is 4pin. I'm not sure how to identify whether the PC has a 4 pin or 6 pin slot. My PC is Fujitsu Siemens product code 830 019692. I could draw the slot on the back of my PC, but I can't tell whether it's 4 pin or 6 pin !!
Any help appreciated. Thanks.

The camera has a 4-pin slot. If the slot on your computer has a slot the same size as your camera, it is 4-pin. If it is larger, it is a 6 pin slot.

How to copy 8mm tape using DCR-TRV350 to pc.


You will need an analogue to digital converter box. You connect the camera to the converter box with analogue cables and connect the A/D box to the PC with a firewire cable.
Note: Many mini DV cameras with analogue inputs can act as an A/D Converter box.

WHICH FIREWIRE CABLE DO I GET FOR THE SONY DCR-TRV22E DV


you would need a ieee1394 4pin cable for the camcorder. of course the other end of the cable would depend on the computer's ieee1394 jack you'll be connecting the cable to. there are 2 types of ilink cables: 4pin-to-4pin or a 4pin-to-6pin (firewire 400) cable. latest mac computers uses a firewire 800 port so if your using one you may need a Moshi 800 to 400 firewire adapter if your having compatibility issues. see: http://store.apple.com/us/product/TW748LL/A for more information. hope this helps. thanks:)

I have a sony pc 100 dv cam. I am trying to find the right cable to connect it to my mac. I need what ever sony uses one one end and usb on the other.


your camcorder doesnt support usb connection.although it came with a pc serial cable,its the cable used for memory stick picture transfer, along with it comes a serial port adaptor for the memory stick and ac adaptor for serial adaptor. of course even if you lost this accessories you can still transfer pics from the ms using a memory card reader which works basically the same way. for videos on the tape you would just need a firewire or an ilink (ieee1394) cable. almost all mac computers support this connection.it's the dv in/out jack on the camcorder with an i symbol.upper most jack on the camcorder jack's location.check your mac to find out what cable you need.the unit uses a 4pin ilink port so you need a 4pin ilink cable at one end and the other end should match of course, the firewire port on your mac computer.should be a plug and play connection.you can use imovie software for video capturing.hope this helps.thanks :)

Recording from the Mini DV to VHS Tape


Mini dv is a digital recording and VHS is analogue so they are incompatible. Does your camera have an analogue output? That is a lead that ends with something like RCA plugs or a Scart plug. Then you can feed the signal into a VHS recorder.
