Does canonZR950 have a DV- In ? (Is a DV port always a I/O port)
Hi guys !! I am an endoscopic surgeon & need to record my endoscopic camera video recordings on to my ZR950 handycam directly while operating. The endoscopic camera has DV / AV / USB / s-video ports. ( ZR 950 has no S-video IN ). Not sure whether the DV port is IN /OUT or only OUT ?

This is incredible - I didn't know such a thing existed - but it does appear that the DV port on that camcorder is bidirectional, so it will serve as an input when connect to a source with a DV out. Very nice!
A lot, of course, will also depend on your endoscopic camera. I have seen endoscopic cams that would definitely be compatible with your Canon. But I saw a particular JVC endoscopic cam that would not be compatible. What is the model/manufacturer of the endoscopic cam?

No. The Canon USA web site says the Canon DW-100 has a USB terminal and works with "USB 2.0 Hi-Speed (with compatible Canon camcorders only)." In other words, the Canon DW-100 burner works only with Canon's USB 2.0 camcorders. I have a Canon ZR200. The ZR200 has Firewire 400 digital video output, not USB 2.0 output. The USB port on the ZR200 is ONLY for still images. Video will not and cannot be output through the USB port on the ZR200. (Page 121 in the ZR200 manual mentions using the USB port on your camcorder for transferring still JPEG images to your computer.) You need a DVD burner with "DV Input" (also called Firewire 400 or IEEE 1394) to hook up your camcorder to burn Mini-DV tapes onto DVD. The Sony VRDMC10 Stand Alone DVD Recorder/Player has DV Input. The ZR200 camcorder did not come with a Firewire cable, but you can buy one at any electronics store or at a cheaper price online. Make sure that you get the right kind of Firewire cable, 4-pin to 4-pin or 4-pin to 6-pin, whatever the DVD burner you choose requires. (Your ZR200 has a 4-pin DV port on the camera's end.)
USB 2.0 Hi-Speed (with compatible Canon camcorders only)
There is no such cord. You will need to have a DV port on your computer and use a DV cable to transfer the data. If you don't already have a DV port, then you can get add-in PCI or PCcard firewire cards that will give you a DV/firewire/IEEE1394/i.Link/s400 port (all those are the different names that manufacturers call the port).
To save the video on a computer, a firewire connections must first be established from the JVC GR-DX307 AS to the appropriate firewire port of the laptop (assuming it has one or through a PCMCIA firewire adapter card if required). In the camera, the FireWire/DV port is located beneath the mode dial on the left side of the JVC GR-DX307’s body. To access the FireWire/DV port, the LCD monitor must be first opened.
Soon as that connection is established, you can use Windows Import Video (Vista) to capture / download the videos.
Alternately, the A / V port of the camera maybe used to connect to a DVD Recorder for direct, realtime copying & burning. For the disc to be playable in another machine, it must be finalized.
I hope the camera you are talking about is ZR200 Mini DV.
As per its specifications.
It has a firewire/DV port.
follow these steps.
I assume you are using this cable.
I am not sure how you used the firewire cable before.
So, try this.
Connect one end of the cable to computer and other to the camera.
Switch on the camera and keep it in play/ edit mode (not in shooting mode).
When you connect the other end to the computer,
There should be a popup asking you what to do.
If there is no popup,
Open Windows Movie maker and import video from device.
You should see the camera in it.
Hope it works.
If your computer comes with an S Video IN port you could use that. If not Im sure you could find a cable or a kit that would allow you to import video from your ILink-IN from an S Video OUT port. You may need to run select software to accomplush the S Vid to ILink, so it may not work directly from Camera to Camera.
1. The software is not required - if you have Windows Movie Maker that will work just as well.
2. It does require the DV (firewire) connection. USB connection creates a master-slave interface for "copy and pasting" or transferring low-frame video content (web-cam) or significantly compressed video w/ special drivers. This camcorder records digitally and requires a digital to digital peer-to-peer interface which the firewire connection allows for.
3. For those looking for Vista USB drivers - there are none from the manufacturer. Vista and XP have adequate native drivers for plug and play - camcorder should work just by plugging it in. If it's not recognizing, it could be a number of things:
-bent or broken USB pins
-inactive USB controller
-erroneous system drivers for USB
-camcorder is not plugged into AC power or is not on
-hotsync manager software from cellphones and PDA interference.
I suggest getting the PCI IEEE 1394 also known as FireWire card. Most of the time these Firewire card comes with a Video editing software but verify because you will need some form of video editing s/w to record the video. After recording then you can edit it however you like and transfer to DVD/etc.
Always a pain in the as to edit video. I've done it a couple of times. So have fun. I still have not manage to find a Video editing s/w that will do a 5.1 audio or multiple audio tracks (similar to switching between languages)
