1) a digital video camcorder that can transfer files through USB, Firewire, etc.

-or-

2) a video card that has a video input (yellow plug)

i would recommend the video card over the digital video camcorder mainly because of the price.

well, if you have a digital video camera, it'll be cheaper for you to buy a firewire pci card or if your motherboard is equipped then you're all set and you don't need to buy shit.
If you have a regular video camera without a digital video out on it it'll be pretty alright too. I got my capture card for 68 bucks CAD it's a winfast something I can't remebebr I'm not at home righ tnow. It's awesome and gets the job done with bigtime quality.

You don't need the capture card but you need the firewire card if your motherboard doesn't already have it/

Go and download Ulead Video Studio 7 it's a powerful program for video capture and editing

yeah firewire is different from usb, don't ask me how different because I do notknowbut if you've ever installed aPCI card before, you'l know how to instal a firewire card. You can buy one from pretty much any electronics/computer store for around 30 bucks CAD and that's like highest markup my ass you could go being 30 bucks.
