Question about Canon MV630i Mini DV Digital Camcorder
Hi there A friend just gave me an old MV640i and I was planing to use it as an analog/digital converter, since it it one of a few left with analog input. Does any of you know how to do this? What cables I need? (I did not get enay cables with the cam) IS there anyplace I can download the manual for this cam? I have over 20 hour's on vhs tape that I need to convert to digital an read some place that a DV cam with analog in was the best thing to use. TIA SvavarK
There are more direct way of transferring VHS to digital format (MPG, AVI, etc. There are now cheap video capture devices like TV tuner, or a video capture card tha connects to USB 2.0 port. However if you still want to use this camera, this ?s what you need to do. 1. Connect the camera to the PC. Most MiniDV cams have an iterface called i-link, firewire or IEEE-1394. If your computer has no shuch interface, you have to install. 2. Record the analog video to the miniDV tape. 3.CApture the recorded tape to the PC. You need to video capture software to do this. You may need to convert the format to the format that you prefer. 4. Burn the vdeo to DVD, you will need a burner and video autthoring softare such as nero.
