    8mm Analog cameral

    What equipment do I need to hook up my Sharp 8mm analog camera to my computer for editing and copying to DVD? It has RCA plugs.

    See our digital editing tutorial. Basically you need a device to convert the analog signal to digital. This could be a capture card, standalone converter or even a digital camcorder.

    Be careful with video capture cards - many of the cheap ones have nasty surprises like not capturing the full frame.

    I would look into the cost of buying a new digital camcorder with Firewire output. You might find that it's about the same price as a capture card, and you'll have much better image quality as a side-effect.
