    Well its difficault to tell. TBH the best way to find out if this port will allow you to capture video is to :rtfm:
    Assuming the port will allow capture then it will do the job, but it is an analogue port and therefore there will be a fair loss of quality with whatever you capture.
    You can add a PCMCIA card with a firewire port for around £20 that will give a full quality digital to digital transfer of your footage that will result in better quality final video.

    That's what 'capture' means - getting the video onto the PC!

    Well i dont have any manual to read and figure out how to do this?
    i have a cable that hooks into the camera and a extended cord that has a yellow and black port that hooks into my notebook. Now if i connect them all together is their a way to transfer the footage to my Notebook.?
