Canon MV700

Last week, my girlfriend and I bought a digital camera, not to take pictures but to make movies. We chose the Canon MV700, it has a 800.000 pixels resolution and a 16x optical zoom (!).

Anyway, I bought a FireWire cable at Triac in Brussels (4 pin to 4 pin, 1.8 meters) for only € 6.99 and tested it yesterday on my laptop (my desktop doesn’t have FireWire).
It’s amazing, digital video rocks!
Windows XP is pretty good handling (this) digital camera when I plugged in the FireWire cable (also called DV cable), a few clicks and before you know it the video is on your harddisk. Uncompressed (raw AVI which stands for Audio Video Interleave) takes about 3.7 megabytes per second (hehe, about 14 gigabytes for 1 hour of video), but with some compression it fits in much smaller files. To save my precious diskspace I’ll either encode it and store it, or just keep the tapes. I think they’re about € 5.00 so the price won’t make the difference.

I installed Adobe Premiere Pro 7.0 and maybe I’ll make some cool videos I can post here. Maybe not. Who will tell? I hope I find the time to do so, because that’s the only thing you can’t buy.

The day I find the guy who invented the 24 hour day I’m gonna sue his ass.

    How can taking a screenshot be harder in firefox than in IE? Just press alt+printscreen, open up paint and paste it inthere, save as .png et voila, you’re done.

    It’s just as easy in every application.

    […] his, but I didn’t think of it. I use the FireWire for Digital Video (as you can read here) but I didn’t think of it as a USB2.0 replacement. Hell, it’s even a lot better than USB2.0. […]
