Hey fellas, new to these forums, and very new to video editing. Before i get into the how's and whatnots about the editing itself, i have a major question. I own a video camera, its a Samsung SCL810 8mm Camcorder. Its got an SVideo slot so i can connect it to a TV to watch, and im almost very sure i cannot bring video from the cam to the pc without any aditional equipment. So i ask, what would i need to buy, in order for that to be possible? Software? Cards? Drivers? a completely different, non PC setup? I don't have a major budget, but at the same time, i wouldnt want to go with any "Well this WILL work,, but it'll suck" equipment. Although, this will probably be a hobby that will fade in and out, id like to play around with it, if its affordable.
Thanks so much in advance fellas!
EDIT: Also, it never occured to be, but im not quite sure how old my camera is, so in which it may be cheaper for a digital camera instead of hardware to get my old one working, not to sure, all opinions welcome, any knowledge is appricated
