    Recording Videos

    Dear Friends,

    I have a new Panasonic DMC-ZS3 and am wondering whether one can hook it up some way to an external hard drive and record videos to that drive rather than to a memory card.

    Any ideas?

    Regards to all,

    Jack Owens

    may be very difficult. The hard drive needs power and needs to write the files in a file structure, which i feel the camera may not be
    able to do.
    better use a large SDRAM, may be 8GB and write the video to compuer disk using a USb card reader.
    As such it is not advisable to use the USb port of the camera for any direct connections.

    Tricky one...

    I understand that some digital still cameras have a "remote capture" facility (such as the Canon 'S' series?) bit I don't think any Panasonics have this feature.

    In my travels I came across this site:

    SarmSoft WebCam

    but I have absolutely no idea how or even if it'll work!

    Good luck.
