I want to save some wear and tear on my cameras heads and am ready to purchase a deck. I shoot Mini DV tapes, but would like to feed directly from my camera to the deck. I would guess the most established deck manufacturers would work well as a capture source for FCS. I am a hobbyist, so price is an issue. However, I also want to buy something which is going to produce good results. I have looked at some models on the web and they range from ~$700 - ~$10,000. That is too large a price range to go into this blindly. Appreciate all comments and advice.
