Sorry if I ask alot of questions,that's proof that I am a novice at this. Thanks for your patience.
I have been procrastinating for a long time on purchasing a video capture card to burn old "VHS C" Tapes to a DVD. I took these videos with a 1997 JVC Analog camcorder.
Now that technology has advanced thus far in twelve years since I used this antiquity of a camcorder, I still would like to save those old memories,and use editing software, still not knowing what would work best. I do realize that editing software will not make the quality any better than the day I filmed it,but I have about 40... 30min tapes.
I have a 46" Samsung HDTV A750. I am thinking about buying a Sony HDR-SR11,with 60GB HD or the SR12 with 120GB.
I just found out from Best Buy today that these models are now discontinued, awaiting newer sony models. To playback on my TV, I would use the HDMI cable,and use the AC power adapter, and not waste battery power.
Sony? JVC? Panasonic? I like the Sony with 10MP still photo feature,but doubt if I would use it much.
When it comes to editing the video in the computer, to burn on a format to play on Blue-ray or any DVD Player onto the TV, Should I get a Blue-ray burner for the computer, or just a dvd burner to put video from the camcorder onto DVD's?
Is there a clear, better choice between Adobe Premiere, or Dazzle from Pinnacle?
Then the salesman mentioned that my computer monitor has to be HCDP ( or something like that) compliant. I have a Viewsonic VX2035wm 5ms response time and 1680x1050 res.
