I have a Sony Hi-8 TRV-608 NTSC video camera. This camera will put out a digital capture signal, but is an analog camera.
My video quality on the camera is good when wired to a TV via Video Output. Camera also has S-Video output jack.
However, when sent to my PC (3 ghz Pentium, 1 gz ram) via USB 1, quality/resolution is poor at best. Thus I can't record to DVD for PC use.
My Dell Dimension E510 doesn't have a fire wire port, but I could buy one.
Would any of your recommended Video Capture devices help? or, should I just sell the Hi-8 and get a Digital camera? Please advise if any of you have had Sony Hi-8 issues.
