I am a novice/intermediate prosumer editor. I have a need for a piece of equipment, but I don't know what it's called or if it exists.
Basically, I want a tape deck for my DV tapes through which I can do all my batch captures. I don't want to use my camcorders anymore, since (A) they are typically being used and (B) I don't want the to put the wear and tear of fast-forwarding/rewinding on the camera itself.
Do you know what this equipment is called? Also, if you have a suggestion of a good, cheaper priced model, I would appreciate that as well.
Thanks so much.
