Question about Sony Handycam DCR-TRV350 Digital Camcorder
I am finding that when I import my movies into iMovie the resolution is really low. Am I doing something wrong in the import process? I am doing something wrong in the video process? I am using the DV port for transferring with a Firewire cable. I can't actually get the USB to work.
I have a TRV730, and on this camera the USB port on the camera only reads files from the memory stick. (Set the camera mode switch to "memory", and the Mac will display the contents within about 20 seconds.) Same as any digital camera.
Video in/out is only done through the firewire (iSight) port. You need to buy a 4-pin/6-pin firewire cable. Good ones are $25 or so, cheap ones can be had for $5 or less but you take your chances with those. (Can anyone explain why Sony includes a useless 4-pin/4-pin iSight cable with the camera??)
What's cool about the Digital8 cameras is that you can put in an old analog (Hi8) tape and output a digital signal to the Mac.
Can't be 100% certain of this, but I'd bet your camera is similarly configured. Squeezing video through the USB port would be painfully slow anyway.
