Greetings to everyone, I have a question to all or any fellow members in this forum. The scenario is this: I have access to an old Sony BetaCam SP UVW100. And I would like to know if it's possible to record on the beta tape and onto an external hard drive at the same time. I've heard of FireStore. Does anyone have experience with this or any other drives? Also, is it possible to record directly from the betacam onto a laptop computer like the old iBook G4's or the new MacBooks with FireWire? What type of cables and/or connectors would I need? Right now I'm the only video output from the camera is through a bnc cable connector but this has no audio output. Does anyone have experience with this situation? Is there any way of sending both the video and audio at the same time? I'm a newbie here so please pardon the mistakes or amateur questions I might have. Thanks, any info would really be appreciated.
