Question about Canon ZR60 Mini DV Digital Camcorder

1 Answer

Focus Good day! When I try to capture footage, the camera screen is completely black.

    I went to help my father record an audition tape tonight, everything worked fine except the display screen was always black. Lighting didn't effect it or anything. It was almost like the lens cap was one (it obviously wasn't, though).

    Is this the only possibility? Or at leas the most likely solution? I'm afraid that if I call Canon they won't do anything about it because it's several years old (3 as of Christmas) and I don't even know if I sent in the warranty info in the first place...

    I feel terrible that I can't help my dad. I also don't like having a broken camera though.

    Thanks for the direction. I appreciate it!

Your CCD is bad. Call customer Service at Canon and tell them the model and the problem and they will fix it for free and pay the shipping. I've done this a lot. It's a problem with the ZR60, 65 &70.

How can I transfer my 8mm tape to my computer? I need to have the film on a flash drive or dvd.


Assuming that you want to do your video work later (editing,DVD burning)in your PC.


1.Your PC must have video capture device(either built-in or add-on).
2.Properly set your video editing software to able to capture video form your device.
3.Connect your camera to your PC in regular manner,like when you connect it to your TV.
4.Have your camera in PLAYBACK mode.wind the tape to the beginning of the footage you want to capture.
5.Open your editing software.turn on capture mode.
6.Start capture.At the same time,start playing back the footage on the cam.
7.When all footage were captured,click stop capture.
8.Start your editing work.
9.when complete,save it to some uncompressed video format like *.avi for later burning to DVD or converting to other format.



For beginners,I recommend Windows Movie Maker video editing software that should come bundled in almost every computer.It's fast,simple but effective enough for home-movie work.Once your project is completed,save your movie in original .avi format for later burning to DVD,etc.



BTW forget the old-school Linear Editing (on the tape) thing.It's slow,complicate and much less flexible than Non-Linear method.

We would like to import footage from the Panasonic NV-GS 400 digital video camera onto a MAC - is this possible


Yes, you can transfer the videos from the Camcorder to the Mac Computer.

Connect the Camcorder to the Mac Computer using i.LINK/Firewire or USB cable.

I suggest that you use the i.LINK/Firewire cable to connect it to the Computer. The i.LINK port is also called IEEE 1394 or Firewire port. An i.LINK is a black D shaped connector with 4 or 6 pins. The type of cable to be used will depend on the i.LINK port of your Computer.

After connecting the Camcorder to the Mac Computer, open the iMovie Application to capture the Videos from the Camcorder and follow the on-screen instruction to complete the transfer of the videos.


Good Luck!!!!!!!!!!!!!

USB streaming does not work for Windows Vista. Use the firewire/ilink connection instead.

Putting video footage on my computer


To get your footage into the computer from DV tape you need a four pin firewire (IEEE1493 or iLink) cable from the camera to a six pin cable into the computer. USB will not do a proper job, it's for downloding photos or as you already mentioned, Web caming.
