£339.00 from Amazon :)

http://www.amazon.co.uk/exec/obidos/ASIN/B0007YQNZ0/hotukdeals-21

But I thought we were discussing this already? :D
#2
lol, i thought if i put this in the last post nobody would reply =)
so jesspos will price match ye?
thanks
#3
Possibly, you should ask them :) If one store manager is refusing, then try another Jessops store - you might get the deal. Otherwise, Amazon return policy isn't that bad...

thinking of buying a tv card, one has firewire on the pci card, if i get it i can then get a firewire camcorder, would this change the camcorder i should get or would you stick with that panasonic?
thanks

This Panasonic is "Firewire camcorder" :)
The Firewire in video world is called "DV connection" or "iLink". Or if they want to be technically correct, they call it by proper name - IEEE-1394.
Anyway, all four names mean the same (for camcorders of course).

Now, the important part. Not all cameras can transfer video to and from computer!
Cheaper ones (yes, that is including NVGS75!) can only transfer video FROM camera to PC. This is called DV OUT. But if you would like to edit video and copy it back to camera via firewire (some people do!) - you need DV IN. Most of home video amateurs don't need it, so you decide whether YOU need it in your camera.
Mind you, there is no technical reason behind this limitation - it was done because of Eurocrats.

Before buying Firewire card - check its spec. It MUST say "OHCI compliant" and preferrably use Texas Instruments chipset. :)

Good luck!

do you know of a tv card that has all these features? i will look myself but as you know more about them...
thanks for all the advice by the way
Danny =)
#7
still looking for this tv card, can't find one anywhere =(
where can i get one?
thanks
#8
What card do you need? Firewire or TV card?
#9
i want a cheap tv card but as some have firewire connections i thought i may as well get one that does both as i am getting a camera anyway
cheers

Most of TV cards normally do not have Firewire - there is no need for it, especially now, when most of new computers have Firewire onboard.
You are probably looking for something like this:

or this
http://www.ebuyer.com/customer/products/index.html?action=c2hvd19wcm9kdWN0X292ZXJ2aWV3&product_uid=82621&_LOC=UK

Do a price search on these cards (V-Stream is KWorld). You can also get more expensive cards with DV, like this:

do i need dv with that camcorder? both of the above cards have dv unless i am mistaken?
sorry to drag this out, im careful with my money and want to buy the right things that's all
thanks
#12
tell you what, to knock this on the head?
1) the panasonic is the best camera for my needs that i will get for £350? true?
2) can you tell me two cards i should consider buying (one being expensive, one not so much) that will allow me to watch my sky on my pc through my aerial, and second of all, let me download from the panasonic camera and put onto dvd disc in a quick way that keeps the quality?
these two answers should be enough for me to stop haslsing you and just buy the bloody things ey? :)

Answer is YES to both questions.
BUT - this camcorder is supporting USB2, so it COULD be possible to transfer video to PC without any card. You can always buy card later, you don't have to buy it now.
#14
need a tv card anyway though

1. Quite possibly.
2. To watch Sky through aerial you need DVB-S card (satellite) and not analogue TV! Or you need to buy Sky box (from, er, Sky) and connect it via analogue input to your PC. Any cheap TV card will do this, but then you will need 2 remote controls - one for Sky (to switch channels) and one for PC (to change sound volume, etc).

So, my advice is - forget about combo TV card. Check whether your PC got Firewire already. If not, check whether this camera can stream video via USB2 at full bitrate.

As to cheap card - I would try this:
http://www.ebuyer.com/customer/products/index.html?action=c2hvd19wcm9kdWN0X292ZXJ2aWV3&product_uid=60573
But if you are non-techie (sorry but that sounds like), then you probably need something easier and with support.
Take a look at Dazzle DV Clip. This is the same card I've got in my PC.
http://www.ebuyer.com/customer/products/index.html?rb=14030884393&action=c2hvd19wcm9kdWN0X292ZXJ2aWV3&product_uid=53338

Another cheapo card is ADS Tech Pyro DV
#16
i have a sky box, and we have it going into every room through aerial, thats why i have a tv on my desk at the minute, i just put the aerial in the back of that, its not a great picture but i dont know what else i can do without running loads of new wires around the house.
my box has a firwire port but my motherborad doesnt support it so i cant use that, thats why i would need a firewire card
#18
nice one, i'll buy that then, still looking for a Panasonic NV-GS75B that is as cheap as amazon but from a store or at least somwhere online that has a store such as currys/comet etc etc, might just have to buy off amazon though, cant find anyone anywhere near that price!
#19
can i just ask what's the difference between a panasonic pv and an nv?
#20
and is that dazzle as good as the KWorld for my needs? a simple one would be nice but even though i sound thick, i should be able to handle techie, i got a degree in computer science, just know bugger all about cameras thats all!
#21
Don't know about PV.
Dazzle is DV only. Kworld is DV + TV. If you can handle the techie stuff, you can visit their websites and have a read of specifications.
Dazzle: [url]www.pinnaclesys.com[/url]
KWorld: [url]www.kworld.com.tw[/url]

And, if you are techie, why don't you just buy that DV card from eBuyer (for 5 quid)? They are also selling TV cards for roughly 20 quid.
#22
can you tell me if the camera supports 1394b or just 1394?
thanks
#23
The spec (http://panasonic.co.uk/camcorders/nvgs75b/index.htm) says IEEE-1394. Why?

UPD: 1394b max bandwidth is set to 800Mbps. 1394a - 400Mbps. DV stream is 25Mbps.
#24
coz 1394b is firewire 800, loads faster than 400 isnt it?
#25
No. See above - DV stream is fixed and you can't do anything about it.
Video transfer will be done at realtime speed.
#26
oh, ok, i will have a look for a cheap dv card then and a cheap tv card
thanks
#27
i have decided to go for a hauppauge win tv card, should do the trick
will these tapes be good enough for the camera ye?
http://www.amazon.co.uk/exec/obidos/ASIN/B00005TQKE/hotukdeals-21
and which is the very best software i can get for the camera?
also looks like im gonna have to buy from amazon (the camera) cant seem to find any details on their warranty or anyhthing, do you know if they are pretty good for insurance?
thanks
#28
I am using cheapo JVC tapes once bought from Comet (or Currys?). It came in pack of 10 and was incredibly cheap, something like 12 quid/pack.
7daysshop is selling 10 DV tapes for £18 + £4 delivery. If you do a search you can probably find better price.

This is interesting... If they really give MVP with it, then... wow, what a deal!
If not, then this card comes without remote control and you can find better stuff.

Buying from Amazon - I had quite good experience. Bought MP3/CD player two years ago (Christmas present). After opening it (month or so after purchasing) it was found that player is faulty. They had no problems refunding everything including postage (although I had to call'em for that).
#29
sorry but what is the mvp? what exactly am i getting free with my tv card?
#30
MVP is standalone device that allow you to stream video and music from your PC via network to any TV. Simple as that. :)
http://www.hauppauge.co.uk/pages/products/data_mediamvp.html

I am not sure whether their promotion is not a mistake or something. These MVPs cost at least twice as much.
#31
i'll buy it then. is it worth buying that dv card or is it no quicker than usb as you said it transfers at real time speed????
if it is worth buying one, which one will do the trick on ebuyer? think you said there is one for a fiver?
thanks
#32
Firewire card for fiver

The TV (not DV!) card from eBuyer (Hauppauge one with supposedly free MVP) is nothing special - it is mono only and no remote. It is MVP that makes deal sweet. If they don't give you said MVP, then This card looks better spec'ed.

As to USB - not all cameras can transfer DV video over USB. I would suggest you to call Panasonic and ask them first.
#33
ok i have ordered the camera and tapes off amazon and the tv card off ebuyer, will have to see if mvp is with it or not but printed the add out anyway
#34
which is the best software available (list more than one if possible) to put my films from camera to dvd without too much configuring and messing with settings
thanks
#35
First, try one you will get with camera and card. Maybe that'll be enough. If not, then my personal favourite is [url=http://www.sonymediasoftware.com/Products/ShowProduct.asp?PID=977]Sony Movie Studio + DVD[url]. But then I am not novice in video world :)
#36
thanks, i'll just go straight for the movie studio i think, im sure they have easy ways of doing it
#37
Wait :) Take a look at software you will get with camera and TV card! It might be quite good :D
#38
ok then, i will do a copy with each and then compare
#39
You can download demo-versions of many video editing software packages and then decide which one you want to buy.
Try Ulead ([url]www.ulead.co.uk[/url]), Pinnacle ([url]www.pinnaclesys.com[/url]), said Sony Media...
