I have had a JVC Analog (1997) Camcorder, and after all these yearsa, I'm trying to transfer all my C tapes to DVD. I bought the Pinnacle 12.1 Studio, and although when I capture my AVI movie files from mt Canon G6 digital camera shooting at hi res, they are ok, far better of course than any reproduction of a analog VHS, VSH-C tapes, granted. Would this Canon camcorder br alright for a begiinner delving into the digiatal transfer to make DVD's to play on CD/DVD Players and BluRay players? I was shocked to find that a 20 minute DVD disc I made on studio 12.1, would actually playback on my SONY BDP-350!
When the first HDD Camcorders came out, they were popular, but now with the bigger flash Cam-cameras, Using a HDD bouncing around on a boat, is not a stable environment for a hard drive,and they could and have crashed, just like a computer, I would assume.
