Working with out firewire

Here in europe the number of HD cameras with firewire has diminished and the HV40 is no longer available. Does anyone have any recommendations on which cameras to use with Boinxtv as my HV40 has broke and I need a back up /replacement. Any cameras that use USB other than webcams.


Unfortunately the camera vendors don’t build cameras with live output in the consumer range anymore. Even with the USB port you won’t get live video data. Hopefully they start including a thunderbolt port, so we can attach cameras directly to computers again. Meanwhile you will have to use the HDMI out of the cameras thats sometimes provided and a 3rd party HDMI capture hardware to get a video signal into your computer. Please have a look into the “Video Input” section of our equipment page here:
