Question about Video Cameras
I own a Canon XL-H1 HDV camera and I recently tried to play back some DV footage that was recorded on another camera (I think it was a Panasonic??).
The problem I'm having is that I can view the footage but the audio is not coming out (there is occasionally some but its choppy and infrequent.
I've tried playing around with the audio settings but I'm wondering if the Panasonic camera may have had a different setting that my Canon can't recognize.
I no longer have the other camera, just the tapes.
Is there a way I can play them back or import them into my computer (I have a MacBook Pro with Final Cut Express).
Canon camcorders have a non-standard head position. Borrow a panasonic or samsung camcorder (those two are compatible) and backup your casettes on dvds. If you want them to be on minidv readable on canon camcorder, connect it afterwards and send video to minidv through your camcorder. It will then be alligned the way that suites your gear.
Either that or go to the professional service that does conversion from minidv tapes. That usually costs around 15$ per hour, so if you have 10 or more hours of video, the less expensive way is buying an entry model of panasonic camcorder.
