Question about Panasonic NV-GS15 Mini DV Digital Camcorder

2 Answers

Low quality resolution

For info.. we have succesfully transferred our video to TOSHIBA laptop and produced a DVD copy using WMV format .Unfortunately the resolution of the DVD copy was inferior to that of the camera, what could have gone wrong or what did we miss out during the process??.. Is the WMV format the right one to use for producing DVD's or could we have used other format eg. NTSC??

If you use Pinnacle Studio you a get a very high resolution off the DV (avi for DV or Mpeg 2) plus if you are wide screen it will capture that as well.

Windows Movie Maker was only design to work with wmv format and it uses version 8 or 9 which isn't even the current standard today.

OUr Samsung SCL 810 Hi-8 Camcorder is flashing Lemg-Eject in yellow, but won't eject a tape. We know it is old, but we're trying to transfer all the tapes to other media so we won't lose them and now the...


I had a similar problem with a Cannon Optura PI and had to send it in. It was better, but I still have problems on occasion. If your intent is to transfer all the tapes to media, I would suggest purchasing Toshiba's DVD Video Recorder/Video Cassette Recorder. Model: DVR620KU. I use a VHS-C Cassette Adapter to play my VHS-C tapes in and the dubbed them to a DVD. Works great. Unfortunately, there is no 8mm/VHS Adapters, since 8mm, Hi8, miniDV are different formats with different technical characteristics than VHS. These formats were never developed with the intention to be mechanically compatible with past or current VHS technology. Your best bet would to borrow a HI-8 Camcorder and then dub your tapes to DVD's using the Toshiba machine. Here is a link to the Toshiba machine. http://www.testfreaks.com/dvd-players-recorders/toshiba-dvr620/
Good luck

    Laptop not recognizing USB connection from HC20


    I'm not sure why the camcorder is giving you an error message... but you should know that this "Burn VCD" thing is a pretty nasty hack from Sony. 

    This will only work in conjunction with the Sony "Picture Package" software.. you have to have that running and properly set up for the video transfer via USB to work. And if it does work, the quality will be horrible -- 1/4 the resolution of you DV images, and arguably worst than VHS tape.

    For a real video transfer from any mini-DV camcorder, you need a Firewire connection (Sony calls this i.Link), and a video
    capture utility (Windows Movie Maker will work, that's included with most versions of Windows these days). A good video package will allow you to convert the DV footage into DVD, which maintains the quality of the DV camcorder's native format.

    Let's try to bottomline this. If you want said DVD to play in most players, you'll be encoding the video according to standards. The current DVD is MPEG2. At the current time, most people just have DV camcorders so you don't see the generational loss as you move the video from DV to DVD. At least I don't.
