Hvx200 Capture

Recommended Posts

I recently got an hvx200 from a friend who has not used it in years and is not sure if it still functions or not. The camera turns on AND records on an old mini dv tape I found. I did not purchase a p2 card yet and would like to know how I can try to capture footage onto my Macbook Pro via USB or firewire. I searched this for a while but couldn't find anything up to date. I also am using Premiere Pro Cs5. Any help is appreciated, thanks.

even if the hvx is newer if you shouldnt really playback alot on the tape side i feel like wouldnt that just put more strain on the heads the digital side (p2) seams okay to play back on since its just reading data off the card and sending it to the lcd so what im trying to say is just get a capture camera and save your good cameras
