I have 3 Canon MiniDV Tape


I have 3 Canon MiniDV Tape Cameras and I have shot weddings, corporate Video and a vlogg with these cameras for years. These use a 4 pin to 6 pin Firewire Cable to transfer Video. Like Kevin Mc Says the only really drawback is transfer time to the computer, which I no longer mind as I am Disability for brain issues and I have all the time in the world to sit and watch tapes transfer to my external drive trough my Computer. I use Sony Vegas Pro 10 for Video Editing, this Program has excellent Video Capture capabilities for my cameras.

I have read much about these newer cameras that store the Videos to SD cards. Avoid them like a cancer or skunk, these cameras interpolate the Video which means it takes 1 frame, electronics within the camera then make the next 3 to 5 frames , then 1 frame from lens and repeat. This kind of Video is near Impossible to edit properly.
