      Hey all,

      I’ve got a mini DV cam (Sony DCR-HC21) with the following outputs: USB, Firewire, A/V Out, LANC. I have NO idea what LANC is…

      I want to be able to capture video on my Dell Laptop that does NOT have a firewire port built in. I’ve seen some Express Cards (link below) for sale and it looks like they will do the trick. I put a firewire card in my home PC and it works great!! Good transfers, great video and audio, very bass’y sound.

      My question is: Does anyone have info on the laptop card to get a firewire connection going? And if so, what the heck is the 5v power adapter on the side of some of the Firewire express cards?

      Thanks VideoMakers!!

      lanc is remote control for the camera, you can hook up a lanc control device to your tripod to focus and zoom the camera without having to reach up to the camera.
