Question about Canon ES280 8mm Analog Camcorder

Open Question

There is a cable in the box of my Canon ES280A camcorder that has something that looks like a battery and that fits into the battery port on the end of it. I'm wondering what the cable hooks into since it seems likely that it is meant to give the camera power?

SOURCE: Canon ZR800 MimiDV Camcorder

You cannot connect a DV cable to a USB port. These are two incompatible standards. DV is also called Firewire, iLink or IEEE1394. You PC must have that kind of port for you to transfer your video from the ZR800 and you will need a DV (iLink/Firewire) cable. You cannot use USB cable they will not work. Check www.MyCableMart.com if you want an example. Most new PC come with 1 or 2 iLink/Firewire/1394 port. If you PC does not have an iLink/Firewire/1394 port then you will need to install a iLink/Firewire/1394 card (see http://www.usbfirewire.com/Parts/rr-fw-byt.html) for more information.

Most PCs have USB ports, but no Firewire port. Macs often have a Firewire port but may not have USB. You could fit an add-on Firewire interface card to a desktop PC, but not to a laptop.

Can I hook up to the DW 100 Canon burner with my ZR200 to burn mini tapes on DVD?


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)

I need to copy videos from my cannon mv700i camcorder and i have a 1394 cable port on my pc what cable do i need to transfer the videos from my cam to my pc/


You need a cable that is called by many names- Firewire, DV, IEEE 1394, and Sony call it i.Link. Many names for the same thing, but they are mostly just one type, with a small plug for the camera end and a larger one to fit the PC. The easiest way to get the right cable is to search Amazon for "canon mv700i firewire". I found a couple right away for less than $10.

Where can i find the tv output of my dvd ivis dc200


There should be a plastic cover in the curved portion of the camcorder battery just to the right of where the battery mounts. Pop this cover off and you will see the AV port. You should have received a cable with the unit that plugs into this port, and the other end into RCA jacks on the TV or VCR.

I'm looking for a cable...


Hi there.

Does your dell computer have a firewire port? That's what kind of cable you need. If so, great, buy one of those at any electronics store. If you don't have a firewire port on your computer, the you can buy a hub that combines both ports in one box.

Note: there is no coverter from one to the other as they are completely different technologies.

Canon camcorders use DV or firewire cables. If you have a connections for that on your iMac all you need is a firewire cable.

Want to view my canon mvx330i camcorder through my tv


Open the front plastic cover to the right of the lens and expose the ports. The yellow one is the AV port. Press the MENU button on the left side and use the rocker switch above to display AV-PHONES, select AV, and press the MENU button to set it and close the menu. Turn both  the camcorder and TV OFF. 
Connect the camcorder AV port to the TV RGB inputs (VIDEO + AUDIO L + AUDIO R) with the cable that came with the camcorder. It has a mini stereo plug at one end and three RCA plugs at the other.
Switch everything on, press PLAY on the camcorder (don't forget to make sure the cassette is wound back to the start). sit back and enjoy.

How can I view the movie


No, they do not fit in a VCR. First, you need to have a TV that has the three input ports on either front or back of the TV. If you do, then you will need to take the cable that comes with the camcorder, plug one end into the A/V port on the side of the camcorder plug the yellow, red and white cables into your TV. Lastly, use your TV remote to select Input or something like that.

Canon V40 HiE - No manual and can't find the charging port


The charging port is at the back of the camera directly below the battery. To the right of the port is the lettering - DC IN 8.4V. The charger is a two prong AC plug at one end, a black box in the middle (approx the size of 2 decks of playing cards) and then your plug to the camera. I believe the total length is approx 2 feet long.
