A capture card converts analogue into dv. A firewire card transfers dv from dv cam.

You gets for what you pay. The best is Canopus - least hassle and best results. The cheaper ones may give probs (DO NOT get Dazzle).

if you are in the market for a new camcorder, consider buying one of the Sony Digital8 cameras that can read analogue tapes. If you offset the cost of the capture card against the cost of the new camcorder, this might be a cheap way of upgrading to DV!
