connecting dv camcorders

  armand 12:47 03 Jul 2003

as i dont have firewire(dvi)on my computer i was wondering whether i have to use usb as the connection or whether the s-video input would be ok for connecting (obviously i want to edit etc).
this affects the camera i can buy.
any advice welcome.

The best solution is to add a firewire card to your PC. A card will cost ~£15.

You have not given spec for your PC. For video editing a minimum spec is 600MHz processor, 128MB RAM and loads of disc space. Plus you will need software such as Pinnacle Studio.
