so i recently bought a new HV30, that seemed to b the camera you guys all recomended it seemed, and ive been looking around numerous forums for advice and tips and such. i recently found a thread on HV20.com where some1 talked to one of the designers or something of the camera and from what i could gather the guy he talked to said that it could be better if you capture the video onto pc via a HDMI cable rather than firewire... have any of you tried this or knw of anyone that has? or did i just interperate this wrong???
You either need a Kona card or a black magic card in your desktop computer or you need a laptop and the Kona aja iohd tethered to your laptop and camera. What it comes down to is that it's only useful for studio work, and it costs a fortune. You'd be better off buying a nicer camera by the time you're done getting setup to capture through HDMI.
