I am currently seeking a camcorder for my husband for christmas. I am looking for one that is capable of filming at/after dark, I really like the sony's but the minidv's seem to be all I can find with night shot feature. If someone could recommend a lower-end priced sony camcorder with night shot, I would greatly appreciate it. I really want one with a memory card slot and/or hard disk so I can just burn directly to dvd. I will most likely purchase a ir illuminator to use with it also.
In these forums, some one mentioned DCR-HC62, which looks great and I have found some with great prices on the net. BUT my question is how do minidv's work. I am really illiterate with technical equipment, and I have never used one before, so I really do not know. I know you use the small dv cassettes, but how do you transfere your filming to the computer. Can you plug the camera into the t.v.?? I am reading on firewire, but what exactly is it. Is it just a special cable, or is there extra hard/software along with it....
Geeze I understand that this sounds really dumb, so I am looking for some great teachers out there to educate me and end my fear of minidvs!!!
Thanks so much for your time, I really do appreciate this!
Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly
Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
