I am looking for a camcoder to record users in the hospital. As I
might need to do some night recordings as well, I definitely need a
camcoder with a night shot feature for recordings with 0 lux (which
means a infrared recording). Another requirement is a standard audio
in, to be able to connect any kind of microphone (in opposite to
Sony's "Active interface Shoe). But those requirements are not a
problem, I found several options which fit these demands.
The cirtical requirment is, that I would like to be able to record for
a long time(optimum would be several days) without the need to do
anything (like changing tapes). My idea was to connect the camcoder to
a pc and then stream the data directly on the harddisc. Unfortunately
the customer service of Canon told me, that this is generally
Does anybody knows otherwise? Or do you have other suggestions
concerning the data storage? As far as I know, the harddisk camcoders
have maximum 60 GB capacity which means something like 3 days, but
correct me if you know otherwise!
Any recommendations or hints would be appreaciated!
