    Which camcorder will do this? S-video input to DV output. The HI8-DV
    S-video is fine but capture is not great with my capture card. I don't
    have a DV firewire camcorder but I do have a JVC s-video output only DV
    camcorder ( the original one)

    A camcorder that will take S-video input and outputs DV firewire would
    solve both my needs. Camcorder DV firewire never drops frames.

    I don't see the need for the converter that only converts s-video to DV
    -- costs too much and I already have a S-video to USB 1.1 but the
    quality is not as good as Firewire DV.

    I don't think that the Sony HI-8 DV will playback my existing library of
    100's of DV tapes of the past 5 years that were recorded XL-1.

    Thanks for all help

  2. My Canon Elura 2MC does this, I think all the Sony 8mm DV cameras do
    also. Right now I have a Samsung Hi8 going into my Elura 2mc which is
    going into my firewire card and then out to the DVD writer. There's a
    lot of humming going on in that room :)

  3. My wife has a new ZR65MC and it has Analog/Digital conversion so you can
    piggyback the cords like that (both Canon, go fig) But you can also spit DV
    back to the camcorder and output in Analog for recording on VHS-C etc
