    hello all this is my first post , i am considering a dv camcorder purchase very soon and want to get the video onto my pc , i understand a dv capture card is required and firewire cable , im not bothered about software right away as i can download trials to use at first , i was wondering if the Dabs value card and cable costing £15 is good enough or is the any quality issues with a cheap card and cable ? If so please tell me why .
    Its easy to take the easy route and buy a kit but this is not always the most cost effective or best option .
    If there is a better card/cable i should use please let me know , i will also be wanting to edit my 8mm tapes through the dv camcorder as i will be buying one with analouge in .

    all advice is greatly appreciated .

    yo potatohead, when i brought a Sony D8 camcorder the Pinnacle dv card came free with it,from.................Dixons (washes out mouth)
    It works perfectly:blush: So I recommend it. Make sure you buy a Sony D8 camcorder, and please check it is backwards compatible, because some models aren't, and you wont be able to play 8mm tapes into your computer through the DV card.
    hope this helps.
