Unfortunately the A410 was designed (believe it or not) without a microphone. Sadly it only takes video, but with no sound. Makes you wonder what was Canon thinking. But your camera does have an interesting side feature that many cameras do not, "Super Macro". With it you can take close-up pictures of even the tiniest objects (try taking a picture of a bug while in super macro, you'll be surprised what your camera can do in this mode).
I thought the problem was solved after talking to the rep. He told me all I needed was a capture card to make my Canon Vixia hf20. the capture card would plug into my fire wire of my Mac, He said I could go to the apple store and buy one. I called the Apple store and they had no Idea what I was talking about, I called several other stores and they also did not have a clue what I was talking about.
If I can get the correct answer that would be great, I spent $20.00 and am stuck in the same situation.
I'm sorry to tell you, but the PowerShot A410 model does not have a microphone to record voice. Of all the A400 models, only the A410 and A420 were made this way. For some unknown reason, Canon decided to not include micorphones wiith these two cameras, thus they can only record video, but no voice.
A hi-8 has to be played into a video capture device in your computer. Most computers do not come with this type of device. Is it your intention to eventually put your video onto dvd, or just store it in the computer? If it is your intention to transfer your video to dvd, you may find it more cost effective to use a stand alone dvd burner. I have 2 panasonic units that I use, and have been very pleased with their performance. Prior to the stand alone burners, I had a video capture device in my computer. I was able to transfer the video, but continued to have compatability and file type issues, making it very difficult to do much with the video once it was on the computer.
Back when P4 systems were common, the hard drive interfaces were quite marginal for video processing and techniques to force the capture to faster devices (like a RAM drive, or now
SSD drive, or SCSI interface to high end striped drives) were used to smooth the video capture. I have had good luck with SATA3 interface SSD's for capturing video, but continue to use a drive other than the one I boot from so windows doesn't mess up the frame rate.
