    Some cameras will do this but I don't know all the working of all the cameras out there. Have you got a friend that has got a PC with a firewire card, you could then capture the video on to that and copy it across onto your laptop.

    Generally - consumer camcorders (within the UK at any rate) that have the ability to record in from a source are rare. Main reason - as wildly stupid as this sounds - they become, in the eyes of the law, a 'Video Recorder'. As such they apparently attract a higher rate of tax. I've heard tell that the hardware is there, just disabled. Frequently a firmware upgrade to European or US spec enables the function.
