    Question S-Video to mini-DVI

    I'm a new convert to Mac, I have a macbook 2.16GHz. After buying this I can't afford to buy a digital camcorder for awhile and need to keep using my old analogue one.

    My question is what is the best way to get footage from my camcorder (which only has S-Video output) onto my mac for some simple editing in iMovie and then burn it/compress it/whatever...

    What hardware/software would be best - I'm also a student on a tight enough budget.

    Any advise would be great. Thanks.

    You can check out the El Gato products, used for video capture on OS X, can't guarantee any cheap prices...but worth a look.

    I know on Geekbrief (a tech podcast available on itunes) the host did a spot on a piece of hardware that allows you to do the same type transfer you want, and it may have been somewhat less expensive than the El Gato, you might look through the older shows, maybe even a couple months back and see what you find. the episodes are only 3 - five minutes each.
