Some of the low-end cams (like my JVC GR-DVL300U) don't support pass-through, so I still end up using my GL-2 for color correction.

George, please elaborate.

Are you saying that you can use the GL2 custom presets to enhance footage passed from an analog cam through to your capture card? Or something else entirely?

I think that what Georges are saying is that he use his camcorder connected to a computer through firewire and connected to a monitor through an analog output (RCA or S-video) to view the effect of the color correction filters he apply in post production in real time on the monitor.

Some lower end cam does not support this feature.

Ohhhhh! That is differant. So, in place of a video card with r/t DVI/TV output to a monitor he uses the output passthrough on his GL2 to output to a monitor. That's ingenuity!

Still though, he said "use the GL2 for color correction". I hope he will elaborate.

No. All I'm saying is I use a monitor via the Firewire preview mode to adjust my colors per NTSC specs.

Why not just buy a cheap Sony mini-DV camcorder? I use my TRV-25 for playing. Yes most of the Sony mini-DV camcorders play DVCAM.

But they (Sony Mine DV cameras) do not record in DVCAM.
I find it much more beneficial to Master to DVCAM (if acquired via DVCAM or Mine DV) then to shoot in native DVCAM and master to Mine DV.

He said he is just looking something to import footage to his NLE, he didn't mention to use it for export, so for playback, a cheap mini-DV camcorder is fine.

I find it fairly safe to assume that most people will like to export there move to tape. Who dose not? Even if you are only distributing the product on DVD you will want to have a Master as a long term back up.

Hey..Thanks Guys,
Yep I could use a small camera for exporting to the NLE wich would take care of the ware and tear then if I wanted it back in DVCAM fomat I could go back to the camera I guess. Does that make any sense?
Thanks

You know, I"m thinking about getting a companion for my PDX10. A deck that is actually the PDX10's little brother...

Not the TRV950, but the TRV33.

I'm in the market for a cheap one, and I'm sure prices of these will drop even more.

Or I can buy a cheap miniDV (these play DVCAM? or not?) off ebay as well. Hmmm. Still probably a Sony or a Canon.

But the first way, I can use the TRV33 as a back up true 16:9 cam as well.
