    How to connect the camera to a laptop?

    If you still have an old video camera with an analog output, then do not rush to write it off due to the advent of digital technology. It can be easily connected to a computer to save video and sound from analog media (video cassettes for the camera). To connect this device with a PC, you will need to install a special video card with an analog input and special drivers for video capture. But if you are the owner of a laptop, then things are a little more complicated, since there is no room for additional expansion slots.
