Canon XH-A1 to USB?
on Sep 30, 2009 at 3:45:21 pm

Hi,

I'm doing a live web stream shoot this weekend and I need to know if it is possible to connect the Canon XH-A1 via USB. I understand the Output is FireWire, but the computer I have to use is a Windows laptop with no FireWire port.

Please let me know of any adapters or cables that will convert Firewire DV to USB. Thanks in advance

why not just buy a $30 firwire card for your laptop? There are firewire to USB adapters, but quite honestly USB 2.0 just doesn't have the same sustained data rate as firewire and corrupt data may possibly occur.
