hi,

if I get a mini dv tape from the telecine lab and i wanna then put in the computer to edit it, can I use my normal DV camera to playback/import the DV? Cheers.

unless it was recorded as DVCAM or DVCPRO (which it likely would be) check with the lab who did the transfer.

The labs I deal with that do MiniDV will give you tapes that will work with any miniDV camcorder. DVCam usually cost extra anyway so I doubt they would give you that when you ask for miniDV. You should be fine since miniDV is a very tightly followed standard.

I've played mini tapes in DVCam format from a Sony DV camera into the computer. I don't know if other brands - Panasonic etc - will do it or not, I don't use DV very much
