Thread: DV capture

  1. #1

    Default DV capture

    Silly question, but does it matter as to the quality of camera you use to capture footage to your HDD?

    I have a XM1 and a cheap panasonic thing and use the panasonic thing to rewind and export tapes to my[img]laptop so as to save the mechanism on my XM1. will this approach affect the quality of my footage at all?[/img]

    So long as you dont get dropouts on capture I would say it doesnt matter what you use.

    I often capture of a cheap old camera nad it seems to wk fine.

    there are no dropouts, this camera is a little trojan!

    So, because it is all filmed in digital on a 3CCD camera, that's what goes onto the tape, then the Panasonic can transmit the same images as captured on the XM1?

    I just want to make sure, as I have an important project coming up, and want to make sure I am not going to lose much quality using this approach.

    Many thanks

    I should think as the tape is all digital and it is a digital transfer it will be fine. I am no expert but I havent noticed a problem.
