Please be aware that much of the software linked to or mentioned on this forum is niche and therefore infrequently downloaded. Lots of anti-virus scanners and so-called malware detectors like to flag infrequently downloaded software as bad until it is either downloaded enough times, or its developer actually bothers with getting each individual release allow listed by every single AV vendor. You can do many people a great favor when encountering such a "problem" example by submitting them to your AV vendor for examination. For almost everything on this forum, it is a false positive.

Typical questions of a new potential miniDV cam owner

Hi!
I'm planning to buy a miniDV camera at around 300$
I think it may be Sony DCR-HC23E

Basically, I'm looking for something which has less pixels and bigger matrix. What can it be?

And the second question is, where can I read what is the best way of downloading and converting the resulting data to some video format (processor consuming with the best compression)

Thanks a lot!

no idea, as for the 2nd part of the question:

the best way is to hook up the firewire cable and dump dv stream to disk, free utility is windv for example.

After that (as a 2nd step) you can compress further.
PANIC: CPU 1: Cache Error (unrecoverable - dcache data) Eframe = 0x90000000208cf3b8
NOTICE - cpu 0 didn't dump TLB, may be hung
