Not sure if this is a good way, but it works

Not sure if this is a good way, but it works

Buy some stretch elastic and velcro at your local fabric store.

Cut off about 6 inches of elastic and tie it to the end of the Firewire cord so it is centered with 3 inches of elastic on either side.

Sew/hotglue on velcro to the ends. Now simply wrap the elastic around the camera/device and attatch the velcro. The elastic will provide a constant pressure to keep the plug in.

Peace, Rolland

Shipping Date

I just searched everywhere to buy a HVR-DR60 and could not find one in stock. Does anyone know if these are in stock anywhere, or if not when they will ship.

Supposedly the 2nd week of January. I have one on order but also purchased a new 120G swappable Nnovia for almost the same price; they're bigger, but a lot more storage space and functionality, and work incredibly well :)

Can you use Final Cut Pro HD to edit the mpeg2 files from the Sony DCR-SR100?

Sony HVR-DR60

Just heard that the HVR-DR60s for Europe is stopped in England, and returned to Sony, because the unit does not support FCP and Avid OMF.

Sony is just weird, I guess since they make VAIO's they're on the PC side yet allot of their prosumer stuff is bought by Apple users~ yet go to Macworld (showed off the Sony FX-1 HDV) and talk about their great respect for Apple and their users yet leave allot of Apple users with no solutions to using allot of their products (when was the last time anyone saw a Sony product with Mac software???)
Sony also debuts new HDV cams (FX7 etc) yet none of these cams can use their HVR unit because they don't enable the proper "rec out" commands via firewire (iLink) and only their upper end V1U does this (a simple change on the board would have made this work on their other units)......I just don't understand Sony at all!!!

They show signs of brilliance with some of their products yet always leave "something" out......just don't get that company!

They ment that this had to be fixed in hardware, so it is not just a software problem. In that case it will take some time before its on the marked.
I have just sold my FS-4 HD, and was waiting for the Sony, to make my recordings easyer. I really need the 14 sec buffer.

Next week from my rep - finally. I'm sure at NAB Sony will have a larger model, too.

I'm trying to understand the compatibility of HVRDR60 with FCP Mac plataform (mainly in DV Standard Definition cause that's what I'm using right now) but it seems like it just trickier every time...

Has anyone already tested this Sony HD? The "raw dv" it delivers is or is not compatible with FCP? And, in HD, the m2t has to be converted before going to FCP??

Arnt, another doubt, what is the 14 sec buffer???

Thank you all.

Hi everyone.
Just picked up my new HVR-DR60, and starts recording tonight. Comments will follow as soon as I have
seen what this little box can do. Curious on the transfer speed from the 1,8" disc to the Desktop.

Hi Juliana.
Not sure howe FCP will react on the DR-60, but I am told that you can not edit on the disc itself.
You need to import the files to a new HD, because on the DR60 every file is in its own folder???

The 14 sec buffer is simply a prerecord to the disc. Very handy if you are waiting a long time for something that suddenly will appear or happen. When I hit the REC button, it will also record the
previous 14 seconds to the DR-60.

good news, Arnt

finally someone will find out what's true and what's just legend about the so called dr60

editing on the disc itself is not a problem for me, if the transfer speed is fast enough

please, I'd ask you to see that compability matter in SD mode (footage "dv raw" from the DR60 to Final Cut) and let me informed

at last, I don't get the prerecord stuff: before you reach the power button to record, it has the previous 14sec recorded? seems like magic... like airplane's cockpit voice recorder?

enjoy your new toy!
