Question about Sony Handycam DCR-HC20 Mini DV Digital Camcorder

1 Answer

Filesize query Hello all, Am new to camcorders have just purchased a sony dcr-hc19E and am trying to copy the movie footage which has been recorded onto dv tape across to my pc via usb and save it in some format to hard disk. The problem i am having is im using a streaming program which enables me to save the footage as it streams but the filesize is rediculous....for 10 minuates of footage...the saved AVI is over 3 gigs in size!! Im obviously missing something ... ive watched avis downloaded from the net which last 2 hours and are bearly 600 megs is it the compression? should i be using a program which doesnt stream? Any replies greatly appreciated.

It's probably not out of line. A one hour minDV holds about 13.5 gigs. AVI files need a LOT of space. Yes, it will be compressed before it goes to DVD, but compression (also called rendering) usually isn't done during the capture process. How much hard drive space do you have? You probably need more.
