What would be a suitable MiniDV recorder to use with a Tobin Telecine unit? My budget is about $500 dollars. What would be the advantages of using something like a Sony GV series Video Walkman as opposed to a Canopus?

I'm assuming you've checked with Clive Tobin on this. But, on the off chance you haven't:

It's not just the camera that's the issue. I suspect it will boil more down to the lensing.

I checked with Clive but he didn't have a recommendation as far as a minidv recorder and he hasn't used a Canopus. I'm working with a small budget so I wanted to get a handle on the total price of everything I will need. I haven't ordered the Telecine unit yet but very soon hopefully. The Tobin systems come with cameras built in so I don't see how lenses would be an issue.The real problem is I can't afford an underscanned monitor so I will have to make due without. This is for personal use and not commercial.

Oh, I see. I thought you meant camcorder, not a recorder. I breezed through your post too quickly. Could you record straight to your computer's hard drive since the telecine unit has the camera already?

I think I can go direct to computer, s-video out from the projector to a Canopus, firewire into the computer. I'm trying to get some info on the Canopus and Virtualdub forums about possible Vista issues.

Should give Tobin Cinema a call, instead of email, and see what they have to say.
