Question about Panasonic HDC-DX1 DVD Camcorder

3 Answers

So i have a good one for you. I am a network engineer and i have not been able to solve this. I have a panasonic hdc-dx1 camcorder. I am using Corel Video Studio Pro x3 and has the capability to capture from a AVCHD camcorder i checked. Which happens to be my camcorder. I cannot find which cable to hook it up to the pc to capture the video. I read some where that you use the firewire cable (IEEE1394) but the camcorder does not have that connection. I will pay to have this issue solved. Thank You

    Thanks for the reply, corel video studio captures videos froom avchd cameras which is mine. Are you saying my hdc-dx1 camera doesnt allow it ?

  • samgiray Sep 13, 2010

    This Panasonic HDC-DX1 is a HD camcorder and doesnt record in a format a normal dvd player can read ! Corel Video Studio Pro X3 captures directly from AVCHD camcorder which is this one. SO no writing on a DVD. You initiate the record from the Video Studio Pro X3. I am asking which cable you need to use to capture the video. Or does this camcorder support capturing. Thanks

  • samgiray Sep 13, 2010

    Very nice answer sir, so the camcorder has a usb, HDMI, Component, S video, analog, outputs. Everything i can need. But corel captures directly from a AVCHD camcorder, so i am wondering if this camcorder can do that. I am suppose to plug a cable in and corel notices it. Then i just hit capture in corel, and the camcorder turns into a expensive webcam so to speak. Maybe this AVCHD camcorder cant do this, i am not sure. I have read it can and it cant so i am not sure what to do

  • samgiray Sep 13, 2010

    ohh also if you plug in the usb, it is just for getting the pictures you took that are on the SDcard in the camcorder. No other function will work in that mode. And you cant transfer the burned dvds on the camcorder thru the usb cable

  • samgiray Sep 14, 2010

    Thanks Man. Thats is what it has come to. I have seen the blackmagic but it has USB3.0 which i dont have. Is there a hdmi capture device that is usb 2.0 or firewire thanks. I have seen Hauppauge, AVerMeda they make external ones with component connection. Is there a external one that is hdmi and usb 2.0 or firewire thanks again

  • samgiray Sep 14, 2010

    thanks again, component it is. I will be going to locations with a hd camera hooked to the laptop so wont be able to be a desktop. Thanks again

Hi!

I think that in this case, as your camera doesn't have a firewire connection (as you mentioned), the best solution would be to use it's HDMI connection, in combination with a HDMI capturing device (for example: Blackmagic Design's Intensity/Intensity Pro) and a special video capturing software such as Blackmagic's own software, Adobe Premiere Pro, the freeware VirtualDub (a little complex to use and configure) or any other HD supported video capturing software of your choice.

Hope this helps,
Pelu.

    If possible (i.e. You're using a desktop PC/Mac, rather than a laptop), I'd recommend you buying the internal Intensity Pro, which connects through a PCI-E connection... Such devices of USB2.0/FireWire connection are rare, as the throughput required is generally too high for USB or Firewire.
    I did found Grass Valley ADVC-HD50 that you can use - but, as you can see, it's MUCH more expensive!

    Best regards,
    Pelu.

Right well, if you have a USB output on your camera, then you can get converters for that firewire, you can get USB 2, to Firewire, as an aside Firewire IS USB, more or less, just differing plugs/sockets. IEEE 1394 standard.
Also if your camera has a Video/Audio out, either HDMI, Component, or Composite, then anyone of these too can be used to get Video/Audio into the PC. With suitable input hardware, which usually is a USB Video Dongle, or TV Tuner card, these take the Output from the camera, into the PC, Then a signal can be streamed to the PC, and digitized for use in Corel.
It also may be possible to use Corel directly, with the USB Dongle(s), as all installing the dongle does, is, it install a Driver, Now, Corel should be able to use that.
Otherwise one would still be able to use it to digitize the incoming signal, and save it as a suitable file, for later use in Corel.

Have a look below at the Firewire to USB dongle.

DVD camcorder is not suppose to hook with PC as movie files can easily be transferred by putting recorded dvd disc from camcorder in dvd rom of computer.
Make sure to finalize dvd after recording in camcorder so computer or other dvd player can read its data.
IEEE1394 cable used with hard drive camcorder or those used Video-8 or MiniDV tapes as data storage medium.
Thanks.

    No, I'm not saying anything about compatibility.
    Does camcorder has USB port?
    Plug it with computer to transfer movie files but only finalized dvd files can be transferred in computer.

    DVD Camcorder records files on dvd disc as raw data that can only be readout through camcorder and can not be transferred in computer, when recording completed, that raw data dvd disc needs to be finalized in camcorder while powering it by ac power charger to get finalize option in menu then recorded dvd disc becomes valid dvd for other dvd rom, player etc

Best HD Camcorder for Mac, iMovie, iMovie? 08, iMovie? 09


Recording daily life and interesting things with a HD camcorder becomes a trend for our people. They like to share these digital camcorder videos on Mac or PC with family and friends. However, selecting a good digital camcorder for Mac is not easy for green hand. Maybe more tips need paying attention, for example, the types of your camcorder and Mac, the version of iMovie on Mac, Mac and PC compability with digital camcorder and so on.

iMovie has been a Mac OS X only application bundled in the iLife suite of Macintosh applications since iMovie3. From 2007 to 2010, Apple developed iMovie to iMovie' 08, iMovie' 09, and iMovie for iPhone and iPod Touch. Luckily, iMovie' 08, iMovie' 09 are designed to work with a wide range of digital video devices and formats, including tape-based(use a FireWire cable, also known as IEEE 1394 or i.Link) and the latest tapeless camcorders that record to flash memory, a hard disk drive(HDD), or DVD media.

A list of Digital Camcorders Compatible with iMovie' 08, iMovie' 09 on Mac OS X
NTSC Camcorders(a video format used in North America, Central America, Japan, and parts of South America)
Canon: DC20, DC50, DC220, DC230, FS10, FS11, FS100, HF10, HF11, HF100, HG10, HG20, HG21, HR10.
JVC: GZ-HD10, GZ-HD30, GZ-HD40, GZ-MG330, GZ-MG67, GZ-MG255, GZ-MG555U, GZ-MG505U.
Panasonic: HDC-DX1, HDC-SD5, HDC-SD9, HDC-SD20, HDC-SD200, HDC-HS9, HDC-HS20, HDC-HS100, HDC-HS200, HDC-HS300, HDC-SX5, SDR-H50, SDR-H60, SDR-H200, SDR-S10
Sony: HDR-CX11, HDR-CX12, HDR-SR1, HDR-SR7, HDR-SR11, HDR-TG1, DCR-SR82, DCR-SR200, DCR-DVD308, DCR-DVD508, DCR-DVD403.

Although iMovie' 08, iMovie' 09 on Mac OS work with most of HD digital camcorders using MPEG-2 (standard definition), MPEG-4, AVCHD, and H.264 formats, not all tapeless camcorders are compatible with iMovie' 08, iMovie '09 because of the wide range of media types and the different ways manufacturers store video on these media types.

How to fix it? To meet people editing AVCHD, MOD files with iMovie, enjoying HD camcorder video on Mac, a powerful HD Video Converter for Mac is specially designed for people who need to convert AVCHD MTS/M2TS, MOD, TS, TOD, MKV files to iMovie MP4, MOV, DV for better editing.

Transfer footage from DVD to Computer for editing


I use ISO Buster to read the AVCHD footage into my computer and then edit with Pinnacle Studio. With ISO Buster, you place the 3" AVCHD DVD into your regular DVD Rom drive on your computer and it will rip the raw files directly from the disk. You cannot transfer the movies from the DX1 to Pinnacle or any other editor using the USB cable.
