    Hi.

    Newbie around here so I would like some advice.

    What I want to do is copy my old Canon 8mm tapes on to my new Canon mv700 minidv camcorder without copying them on to vhs first. I would like to do a straight tape transfer if possible.

    I've got 3.5mm av connectors for both with the usual R,W,Y male phono connectors at each end. Is it just a case of joining these 2 cables with a phono connector, and hoping for the best ?

    As usual, the manual is confusing !!!

    Doh, I've just checked and it is the 700i - means it can take input ? ( Said I was noob !)

    So it is possible then, with a F-F phono connector ?

    Does the 700i have analogue-digital pass through?

    Cheers

    Aye, I was going to record them to the mini dv tape and then firewire to PC, but having read the manual I think it does analogue-digital pass through.
