So true ... most consumer DV cameras need light ... the better the light, the better the shot. Especially if your using a consumer level "single chip" camera ...

But if your particular camera has shutter/aperture priority modes ... you can get some pretty good color in rather dark settings ...

Check this video of a band I shot in a rather dark room with only a spot on the singers face ...

Turned out pretty good ... but I had the camera set on aperture priority and I had the timing set real slow ... so more light came through but with a slight sort of smearing effect in the final video:

Get to know your gear ...

You can hack the cheapest of cameras and make 'em look a lot better than you'd expect.

I am saying in my experience that firewire did make my video quality better.

I am saying that cameras capture video at 720x480, not 640x480. I am sorry if I misunderstood you there. I was not trying to say that it was 4:3.

I am not trying to win. I am going to go look at some facts on this stuff now and maybe you taught me something. In that case, thank you. In my situation though, capturing from a USB cable just did not work. I have two other friends with MiniDV video cameras like I do and they are all different from mine. They both ended up going and buying a firewire cord and being satisfied with it. They had the same problem as I did: the USB cable just could not capture fast enough.

Sorry for the little 'argument' if you will.
