I bought a mini DV camcorder a few weeks ago (JVC with dv in/out). I bought a firewire card (£10 from Dabs) and then installed Ulead Videostudio 7. I have had lots of fun with this set uo. The quality is excellent and i have burn the results onto DVD. Digital Camcorder (or is it Video) Made Easy is excellent - last month they had trial version of Ulead Videostudio and Pinnacle 8, which I used before buying the Ulead one.
