Learn why you should transfer your video with FireWire!

One product category where USB currently has an advantage is when capturing video tape for DVD! But otherwise: USE FireWire!

I think that D8 uses USB only, while DV and HDV use firewire. With firewire being the obvious choice for several reasons.

What software supports importing video through firewire? What camera and program do you use?
