I'm having fun with my new Panasonic NV-GS500. I don't know if this is standard for all Panasonics but it appears to import footage via a usb cable, not the DV connection (which makes me wonder what it's purpose is).
I couldn't find a vista usb driver for my laptop, so loaded all the software on my slightly glitch xp pc, but wondered if I could use my Canon MV630i to capture the footage instead? It had passed my bed time when this thought popped into my head so I left it at that last night.
Will it matter that I recorded something in DV-PAL 16:9 when the Canon doesn't record in this ratio, well not properly at least?
