      I use Pinnicle Studios software for the Perth Extreme stuff. Its called Studio 7.

      The bike is freeekn awsome. Gave a buddy of mine on my 02 Gixer a couple of runs on Ried Highway yesterday. He is a talented rider and he is same weight. My 03 bike had a great advantage lower in the rev range, and a sligh advantage up top of the rev range and that is only with 400 k's on the clock.

      Look forward to when its run in.

      So on the eight day, after wasting time faffing about with unimportant guff like heaven & earth & the waters & sky & creatures [& having a wee kip] & man.... God created PSB (GenesiSX-R1000)

        For about $70.00 you can buy a TV capture card - but the quality may not be as good as if you can connect it using Firewire or USB (assuming your camera supports either)...

        Oh, and I have found that the software you use makes a BIG difference to quality as the cheaper stuff can't get a good frame rate...

        Good luck on ya search...B-)

          I don't know what the frig a firewire is, but when I bought my camcorder I got a lead with it, but that connects to the computers serial port not USB, would this do the trick?

              Ok, do you know what the model, age and type (analog or digital) your camera is??

              Cause this type of info REALLY helps in finding out what you can do with it...b-)

              Firewire is a type of connection between PCs and different devices (cameras, external drives etc) and is also known as 1394. Often, only the number is written near the plug/socket due to space on the camera...

              If you want to find out more about something, just go to www.google.com or click here - http://www.google.com.au/search?q=firewire...F-8&hl=en&meta= and type it in and search, there's thousands of sites with useful stuff on them...if you look.

              If you do decide to buy something, definately checkout www.ple.com.au as they have good prices and good products.

                My digital camera is quite new and the serial port connector came with the digital still software (which is crap) for uploading pictures, so I use a card reader instead for that.

                The picture is poor quality but do any of these sockets look like they will be for the firewire?

                  After alot of squinting, the socket on the very left hand side that is labelled 'DV OUT' looks like a FireWire connection.

                  As Flakey said, you will need to get a FireWire card for your PC, as well as a link cable to go between your Camera and your PC.

                  Once you have those items, it should be smooth sailing from then on in.

                      $300-500 bucks...No way.
                      I work at an Electronics store, we sell FireWire cards for just under $60.
                      And 1394 (cable to connect cam to PC) cables for about $30.
                      So for about $100, you should be set.
                      If you want one, just give us a yell and i will see if can suss something out for you.
