#1031, "High-definition camera compatibility"


          

I want to ask which high-definition cameras, either HDV or AVCHD, can be used for live video streaming using dvgrab. Does the Sony HDR-HC5/7/9 and the Canon HV10/20 work well? What other HighDef cameras do you recommend? I can't seem to find an updated compatibility list of supported hardware from the linux1394 site so I'll just ask here. Thanks

Any HDV camera should work, but I don't have a list. There is just not enough concentration of users that visit here to give useful feedback. I have used a friend's Canon HV20 with dvgrab just fine. I do not recommend an AVCHD camera. I don't think it has a live streaming option; you only transfer via USB storage. Then, playback and editing are very demanding while not yet offering any image quality advantage.

Thanks for the reply. We're about to buy the Sony HDR-HC5 for video streaming and videoconferencing. It's HDV and has firewire. I think it would work just fine. Thanks

Hi, first of all, sorry for my english level and of course, thanks a lot for people who develop dvgrab and kino.
One of my friends let me a Sony Hdv camera, model HVR Z1e. The iee1394 modules and kino works great for movies recorded in DV format. I was able to control the camera from kino capture window and from dvgrab. Even I managed to captured a piece of movie recorded in hdv format. The problem is that dvgrab generates an .m2t that have a lot of noise in soundtrack and the image seems to be interlaced depending on the movement.
I don't know if anybody has managed to capture hdv with this camera and also when do I have to give muy feedback using dvgrab and this camera. Now I have to give back the camera to my friend, but he wouldn't mind lending it again in a future (when his work allows him).

Thanks in advance

Only dvgrab supports HDV, not Kino, as you probably figured out. The capture is a digital data transfer process, and dvgrab is mainly not responsible for any audio noise. If there is data loss somewhere, that can cause a problem. Also, the software you used to play back could cause the noise. Also, the interlace motion is a characterstic of the technology, also unrelated to dvgrab.
