    Default Anaolgue to digital - better by PC or via a digital camera?

    Hi
    I've heard conflicting views on this.
    I wish to convert my VHS analogue tapes to digital. Whicg process will provide the better quality result.
    1) Transferring the tape via my Pinnacle PCTV card to my PC, using good software, and a AMD 3500 CPU, and 9600XT 256 meg graphics card, and 1 gig of RAM.
    OR 2) Playing the VHS via VCR into a Canon digital camera and back to the PC via flywire?
    How much out of 10 would readers give each process?

    Point 9 in the FAQ gives you a good summary / round up

    I spent many hours backing up old VHS videos through my camcorder and the results were just fine. It also depends on what you want to do with the captured video. For editing get it as DV AVI for archiving go straight to DVD is the general rule I believe.
