HD100 analog video/audio input???

Does it have one? I know its not important to many people. But often I find myself in need of analog (RCA connector and/or S-video) A/V inputs.
sometimes I need to get some video from a source out in the field and at times this is the best and quickest way to get it.
I was shooting a auto racing event recently with my Sony PD100 shooting for a local TV show, and I missed a great shot of a car that almost wiped out, but was able to maintain control. Luckily for me, a spectator near me captured the shot. I asked him if I could just connect my camera to his with my cable and transfer his footage to my tape.
Easy breezy.
I run into situations where I need analog inputs on a camera. I haven't found any info that the HD100 has them. But i am interested in the HD100. Is it sans analog a/v inputs???
Thanks in advance.

That is correct, the analog connectors on the HD100 are output only. The only way the camera can record from an external source is through Firewire.
