1. Video = Firewire.
2. Picts = memory card reader.
Hope my experiences help you not re-learn what I've been through.
this surely has been asnwered a 1000 times. i had an analog camcorder years ago until it broke. take still pictures mostly now because my wife does a lot of scrapbooking. would like to get a cheaper camcorder to take some videos and then i would like to know how to check cameras to find out if they have connections that i could get the videos off to my computer. then i could get still pics of the ones i want and still have the videos. thanks.
