Thread: Analogue to Digital Convetor for helmet cam?

  1. #1

    Default Analogue to Digital Convetor for helmet cam?

    I have the HDR-HC1E Camcorder which does not have an analogue input, only a DV input. According the manual it is capable of recording from devices such as a VCR, providing it has a digital output. However I've just bought a helmet cam mistakenly thinking it would connect up. The helmet cam requires to be plugged into an analogue input (AV-IN) on a camcorder.

    Without me having to go out an buy a new camcorder with AV-In, is there any kind of anlogue-digital convertor/bridge kind of thing I can fit between the helmet cam and my HDR-HC1E camcorder?

    Thanks.

    There are such devices (analogue to digital convertors), but I've never seen one that doesn't require power.

    Luckily, providing power to an analog to digital video converter is easy.

    You might already have a 12v nimh cell pack or other power source for the helmet cam?

    Here is a 12v to 5v dc-dc converter that might power the ADVC55 too

    And some more ideas here:
