Cheap Cam or Deck?
on Apr 10, 2006 at 7:08:59 pm

I was thinking about buying a deck, but then a friend offered me their tiny Canon optura camera. If I'm simply transferring footage to my PC, is there any reason I should plunk down the cash and get a deck instead of just using this Cheapie camera? The original footage was shot on a DVX100a.

Thanks!

not really, unless you are worried you will wear out your friends camera. I had a nice JVC mini DV deck, but never used it. I always hooked up to my canon gl1. My camera still runs fine after 5-6 years, so I sold my deck. There are some other options available on the deck that the camera does not have, but for simple transfers they are not necessary.
