Best config (Dell Inspiron 510m, Premiere Pro 1.5, External monitor via FW)

Hi Forum,

I have a Dell Inspiron 510m and am currently using my Canon XM1 to allow me to preview my video. To do this I have connected the camera to the laptop via firewire, and then used the s-video connector to pass a YC input to my external Sony monitor.

Although this seems to work I have a few questions:

1, Is it possible/better to use an external box (like a DATAVIDEO DAC-100 Y/C-Composite Dv Converter - see http://www.libraprobroadcast.co.uk/p...2D100&cat=194). If so what benefits would I get?

2, Is using the YC input ok?

3, Are there any options for using an output on the laptop (maybe via VGA connector) and would premiere let me select this to be used for preview video only?

4, Should I consider any other USB2, FW or PCMCIA convertor options?

Thanks in advance

Alex
