So apparently there is NO way to capture mini-DV footage other than via firewire. So there is that.
Unfortunately my laptop doesn't have a firewire port, nor was I able to track down any sort of adapter or hub with a firewire port. The only ones I can find are online, I went to three different places today and zilch.
But... I have some footage I need to capture to my hard drive today.
Can anyone help? Its only ~14 minutes of footage. I have my camera, power and a firewire/4-pin cable. I just need a computer that accepts firewire.
I live in the city, so that'd be my preference. But since I need to get this footage, I am open to wherever. I am able to come over anytime from now to midnight.
Let me know...
Thanks a lot.
