I've been video editing my son's little league games on an old computer in the garage--the computer has a firewire card that allows me to plug in my camcorder.
For months, I've been searching the web for a product that would convert firewire to usb. No such luck, until I stumbled across an ad for a MyGica CapIt USB device that allows transfer of video through the AV connection on the camcorder.
On Sunday, I started playing with my new toy by transferring and editing my son's little league tournament game.
