      I’m in a jam. I’m recording a deposition this week and thought I had all of the necessary equipment, but now I’m scared. I want to record with a Canon HF 100 while sending its recording/output to a VCR in realtime. I thought I could simply use the mini a/v out, but this only transmitted to the VCR when the camcorder was in playback. There was no signal when recording. Any suggestions?

      I'm not familiar with the HF100 but in many cameras there is a menu option that provides for video output while recording? You might look to see. If all else fails, consider renting a camera for the shoot.

      I've worked with a lot of camcorders and have yet to see one that would not provide live video output while shooting. My Canon HV20 has a menu option, as Jack mentioned, something to the effect of "DISPLAY" being either "LCD" or "LCD/AV OUT" and you would want the second option obviously.
