Analogue video capture

Can anybody comment on the quality of analogue video capture, when compared to a digital video camera (say 3ccd)?

I have an old analogue camera, and I guess I have the choice of keeping that and buying a tv card of some sorts to capture it, or shelling out the $$ and buying a new digital camcorder.

What is the consensus? :confused:

Go for the new hardware. You’ll be MUCH happier with the picture quality. Capturing is a pain, slow and ties up your system for extended periods.
