Hello ALL, Fairly new to the community, happy to be aboard.. Building a new system, should be completed by june, I own a Canon ZR20 Mini DV camera.. I want to Transfer Old Home VHS Movies to DVD, or Even CD for now.. What is a Good Setup to get but won't Kill My Wallet. about 700$
1. it's a DV card only. You still need a AV/DV convertor to capture from current VHS material.
2. It's not OCHI compliant and uses propiarty drivers. You don't want to go there.
Better use a standard Fire wire card. I know some guys that got a Pinnacle Studio DV. They started using it and when they became more fameliare with video editing moved to a better editing program still using the Card and cables as standard fire wire cards. Very good value for money.
BTW, at my site is a review of the Pinnacle Pro-One Vs. Canopus DV Storm. It's more expencive cards but you might want to take a look at it.
