Thread: Poor quality from USB connection? Newby

    Default Poor quality from USB connection? Newby

    I've just bought a Sony HC94 MiniDV cam. This is my first video cam.

    I shot a short piece which looks great when played direct to TV via the cam.

    I then tried to capture this to my comp. I tried both using the Sony software supplied and also via Roxio easy media 7.

    Even though all the quality settings were at their highest I was very unimpressed with the results. On the comp at anything like full screen they look very pixelated etc.

    As a test I bust this to DVD and played throught TV - same again - MUCH worse quality than playing direct from the cam to the extent where I just thought it was rubbish.

    Is the problem that I am trying to capture via USB rather than firewire? Or something else?

    I've now ordered a firewire card so will try that when it arrives but I would appreciate either confirmation that this will sort it or some other suggestions as to the problem.

    Thanks

    Yes the problem is the use of the USB cable, which will be fixed by using a firewire cable.
