-Hey guys, I recently bought a Canon GL2 from a POTN user for an awesome price. After talking to him and reading the manual, I found out that you CANNOT record your videos through the SD card slot and only tape. I asked the person that I bought it from and to convert your DV tapes into your computer is a long and arduous process.
-Is there any way you can record videos through the SD card slot and if you can, how do you transfer the video from the camcorder to the computer.
-If you cannot, how can you transfer the video from the DV tape to your computer without converting it into VHS/DVD then to your computer (that is what he told me).
-Also, if you do convert DV tape to your computer, is there any loss of quality in audio or video?
-Another question: what are some good high quality video editing programs?
I may be familiar with photography but I am new into videography.
Thanks in advance
