Question about Canon Optura 30 Mini DV Digital Camcorder

1 Answer

Audio Quality I just recently purchased a new Canon Optura 30 DV Camcorder. When I try to transfer my tapes to my hard drive the audio quality is jumpy and skips in and out. I use Windows XP and I am connecting my camera via Firewire. When I connect the camera it automatically picks it up and gives the option of using the windows program for transferring the video. That is how I record it to my hard drive. I would very much appreciate anyone's input/help with this problem. Thank you.

Re: Audio Quality

It's possible that the hard disks are in a non-DMA mode. Microsoft admits that there is a problem and a quick fix is to set the drives to PIO, OK it then go back in and set them to DMA. Best of luck,

Need to remove tape from Canon optura 50 with camera off. The camera has died, and will not power up.


Hi,

Looks like the Canon Camcorder has failure in the drive system for the tape. This is mechanical issue, so you would need to take it in to get fixed.

A few times I've been able to resolve this by blowing compressed air in the frame and cleaning the head
( try this if you can do it )

Else, you will have to get this repaired by a professional technician.

Distorted sound on playback, samsung mini dv camcorder.


Try a DV tape cleaner first. If that doesn't work, see what it would take to get the audio heads realigned. Any camera store can do that for you.

Transfering from a hard drive camcorder to a mini dv


Yes. Using a DV or firewire cable and the right software you can record to DV tape. I know Pinnacle Studio software is capable of doing this and will even control the recording of the taping as well through the sofware.

Canon Optura 40 playback - only get blue screen - no image, no sound


Try a cleaning tape. Buy a good quality cleaning tape (Panasonic makes one) and remember: cleaning tapes are abrasive so don't overuse it! Overuse can result in the need to replace the rotating drum assy in the camcorder. I'll bet a cleaning tape takes care of your problem.

Video transfer from Canon Optura 10 to Apple iMac


It should work well with Apple iMovie that came with your mac.

Available for $79 from the apple store. Here's a link to the store page. Buy now

Camcorder video transfer formats


The IEEE 1374 is the way to go. It is fast, and it is digital. Therefore, the video and audio will not be degraded in the transfer. The others are analog interfaces.

Transfer Problem


I just went through exactly what you are describing and my solution was to install a Firewire card. The DV cable transfers my video's from the camera's cassette to my PC with no breakdown in quality. I'm very happy with this. The USB only works with the memory card, (quality is lost) Got my Firewire card on Ebay cheap, and it came with the cable and the software.
