PDX10 pass through?

Is it possible to use this camera to view the NLE output on a TV monitor? i.e. computer NLE -> firewire -> PDX10 -> a/v outputs -> TV monitor?
Thanks

Sure, just about any camera will do this AFAIK. You can output either via RCA or S-video. Note that the PDX-10 uses a special 1/8" miniplug which breaks out into 3 male RCA plugs for video, left and right audio. The cable is included with the camera but might be hard to find otherwise (although I think other small camcorders use something similar). I guess the problem is that there wouldn't be room for full size female RCA outlets. The s-video uses a standard mini DIN connector.

Boyd, thanks for your prompt response!
I read the manual, and it was not clear that it could be done.

Excuse my ignorance but what's AFAIK?

Cheers

Oops. Silly me :-)

Then can anybody confirm by personal experience that this is true?

I can confirm that the PDX-10 does this. The AFAIK disclaimer was in reference to my statement that "just about any camera can do this".

I do it all the time, Juan. And you can also go the other way, use the PDX10 to capture video coming from a VHS Deck or a Hi8 camcorder. Some programs (FCP4) are not very happy capturing video without timecode though so you might have to use HackTV.

I have relatives in Vancouver. Jorge Montesi, heard of him?

Oh sure. But mostly his work has been in TV series shot in film like Night Heat, NYPD Blue, Friday 13th and other stuff like that. He likes to direct while operating second camera and also acts and produces sometimes:
