firewire control over more than 1 cam
on May 3, 2007 at 3:14:36 pm

hi everyone, i am a newbie here.
i currently use 2 sony camcorders and a panasonic camcorder.
i was wondering if there was any way i could control the 3 cams from a laptop or pc using firewire.
ideally i would like to manually or automatically start/stop recording possibly even control the zoom on the 3 cameras indepandantly but all from one program on my laptop?
any help with this would be greatly appreciated.
Cool

Mmm sorry to say this but is not possible since only one 1394 camera/device can be controlled at once by the host (no matter how many u have).

Maybe not the answer u expected, but is basically a hardware limitation.
