Transfer stick images on to a DV tape in the same camera, or on to your editor, etc.
Review you still shots at the motel, via the camera swing-out monitor or via a TV monitor
Review your still shots at home -
lock the doors and invite guests in
- (suckers ?)
And the big plus, make 4 x 6 prints on regular photo-print paper, 29 cents
each, at Costco or Future Shop, I-hour lab . Image resolution quite good at 4 x 6 size
Or, print your own by downloading to a computer
And, send photos by email to friends
chatter wont necessarily improve the content of your videos, but could make them look sharper and clearer.
DVD burning - cheapest
via PC or Apple appliance
DVD burning via standalone DVD burners - relatively expensive compared
to PC burners, but requiring little computer know-how - $400 to $ 1300 .
DVD burning via burners incorporated within video editors, a la Casablanca models - practically foolproof, but tediously slow.
DVD players - reliable models for NTSC, from trusted, well-known manufacturers,
as low as $100, taxes inc. Outputs,
composite (yellow cable), S-VHS,
component (if your TV has component inputs) and DV (if your TV has DV
Definitely sharper than regular VHS VCRs, both into VHS and S-VHS cables.
Compatibility of a plethora of different standards. Manageable if you play DVDs from DVD blanks .
