After being letdown by the performace of a dedicated analog to digital converter i'm now looking for a good dv camcorder that allows analog to digital passthrough from vcr to mac, ideally with s-video input. Basically, the dac-200 i have been using doesnt like poor quality video tapes and drops frames like nobodys business, plus the audio levels are far too quiet (my tubeyou videos are quieter than everyone elses !). I never had this problem when I used to use my old canon dv camcorder for the same process but that never had s-video input. Any cheap s-video capable ones out there ?
