I'm looking into miniDV/VHS combo (well I'm trying to, Google isn't being very helpful).
My cam (TRV-14) doesn't have DV-Out, so I'm unable to export my video back to miniDV. Also I've been told it can wear the heads down if you capture using your cam? (I wouldn't mind not having the hassle of getting the cam out all the time! )
I'm defiantly considering purchasing a DVD RW, but I still think I should have a device for transferring edited video back onto miniDV, and onto VHS.
What do you all think? Should I buy one, are they worth it?
I'd also like to ask where to buy on from (UK), and how much a cheap, decent one would cost? I have a low budget you see.. I need it to:
miniDV -> PC (via firewire)
miniDV -> VHS
PC -> miniDV (via firewire)
(maybe PC -> VHS?)
All feedback would be greatly appreciated! Any other tips/info would also be greatly appreciated!
Thanks in advanced,
