I need a small canon camera to capture from?

I want to ingest footage shot on XL2 or XL H1 via firewire from a small cheap camera. Instead of using my bigger cameras.

Is that the color red you want to use?

Pick any one you'd like.
Any home video DV camcorder will work just fine.
There is no quality difference in the transfer because you are just ingesting a digital file of numbers from the tape via FireWire.

I have a half-dozen small camcorders that I use for this.

Paid under $150 for each of them, from local pawn shops.

If one fails (none have to date) I can just toss it and grab another.

Thank you. I'll go purchase one.

what little camcorder will play back HDV footage?

Is that the color red you want to use?
