    I was wondering if anyone out there owns a Panasonic HS-2 dvd recorder and whether or not you use it to download video from a dv camcorder and then edit the video on the hard drive and then burn it onto a blank dvd. A lot of people I've talked to prefer using a PC to edit their footage but I've found that the Panny does an excellant job. If you have both; a Panny and a PC, which do you prefer?
    One of the things I like about the Panny is that it has a firewire connection, which allows you to make an exact copy of the original footage to be edited.
    Give me some feedback! Tunes Man.

    Tried to do it on the pc and hit the file size limits so can't load a whole tape in one go. Then couldn't get it to burn the file to a cd, everything said it was working, vcd finalised but nothing on it at all!

    Gave up, bought a hs2 and have copied all my tapes to the hard drive and then burnt them straight to dvd-r at near xp quality. If I ever want to extract sections for editing, I can do uit later, and have freed up the tapes for re-use.

    Only problem though is a slight pause in the playback every few seconds, only momentary but noticeable.
