    Default 2 Questions

    So I just got a new camera today, Panasonic NV-GS120.
    #1 I want to know what the best capture card would be to use. It'll be PAL format if that's any help but anything else I need to know. I've seen ones on eBay pretty cheap and I'm wondering if I could get one cos I just want it to capture footage off of my camera.
    #2 I know I can use USB (don't think it's even 2.0 :() to transfer the footage over but would my camera allow me to transfer using Firewire? I know it works better and I have a Firewire card on my computer but I'm not sure what outlets I need on my camera. I can see the USB, "Remote/Mic/Plugin Power" and "AV In/Out". Any ideas?

    Thanks.

    your camera will have a firewire port on it, look for something with DV written next to it, (on my Panasonic NV GS 75 it's located under the LCD screen),

    as you have a firewire card already, you won't need any capture card to capture your footage, just connect with firewire.

    I can't see anything with DV next to it, will it definetely have the port on the camera? And if it does, do I need a different cord to connect the camera to the computer than the USB one supplied? I'm thinking I would but just checking.

    Yay, I found the DV outlet, little bugger was hiding. Who would have thought that the manual would be helpful
    Do I now just need a DV cable and will this connect to my firewire port?
