I have become totally frustrated trying to capture from my Sony FX1000 using Firewire. I now shoot with the Sony, then capture with my Canon HV30 because I cannot get my FX1000 to be recognised by my PC with Adobe CS4, on a i7 PC with windows 7.
So.. I wondered if a Matrox Mini capture card which uses HDMI would not be a workaround.The FX1000 does have HDMI out and the Matrox has HDMI in.
Does anyone know if this would solve the Firewire conundrum of which I see many people with Sony (mainly) complain about?
