Question about Sony Handycam CCD-TRV68 Camcorder
I have an old Sony Hi8 Handycam, not being used, going to waste, and I'd like to use it as a 24/7 security camera, maybe feed back to a monitoring PC to do screen captures and save digital files, still or movie - just to chance a face shot of trespassers.
Tricks would be to have the camera powered (on) constantly and constant screen captures to an external HDD which over-writes itself after filling (say after a weeks worth of footage).
Extremely low low budget.
You need to have things with you before you can proceed to use it as a security camera. As your's is a analog camera we will require a video capture card connected with your pc/laptop.
After you have one connect that with your pc and pTo get the video into your computer, you need a analogue to digital video capture card....otherwise, connect the camcorder to a CD or DVD player/recorder, and use the CD/DVD as a source for your video editing... Otherwise, you need a later model of SONY "Digital 8" digital camcorder which plays analogue tape, and with this your computer can capture the video via firewire
