I have just brought a canon elura 65 second hand and I can't seem to find the dv firewire input , on the specs it says it has i link but I believe the one that I purchased only connects to usa eqipment.

Isa there anyway round this I mean can i buy a transformer here in the uk so I can connect it to a PAL dvd recorder?

Thanks Pete and Jaymac
From that booklet you sent me I found the firewire cable and tried it out .
The good news is that I can view the footage on my tv through my panasonic dvd recorder if I set it on nstc but I can't record from the ntsc signal which is a real shame maybe I can buy a converter in maplins a uk electrical shop.

Thanks again
