This is the perfect leadin


This is the perfect leadin for my question. I am doing football games with a Sony VX2100 along with a friend who is using a TRV22. There is another person shooting the same game from the same vantage point using a HD Camera. We are all getting different views as in close up, zooms and etc. I am using a standalone DVD recorder to produce the DVDs at present. But later after the season ends, I would like to create a composite "good, bad and ugly" DVD of hightlights of the entire season.

Now my question. Will there be any loss of quality if I feed the Hard Drive Camera into my VX2100 and transfer the desired scenes to digital footage on tape? This way, the footage should not be compressed. If it comes out the HD Camera good enough for a DVD or TV will it be good enough to transfer to DV tape?

I also plan later to transfer some personal VHS, 8MM and VHC tapes to Mini DV tapes through the VX2100 the same way if this process gives good results. This way, when I am ready to edit, I can go into the computer via a firewire using my DCR-HC48.

Plus, I will have the older tapes now in a digital format waiting on the next revolution in storage.

Sorry if this is difficult to understand what I am saying, but I never ever did any videoing until Christmas of 2006 when I got the 2100. I am reading all forums on the web and my head is spinning. I am on a vertical learning curve and THIS forum has been a godsend for me.

You guys are great.
