Yes, it does.
Quote:>Also, does anyone know of a video cam with S-video out?
Almost any Hi-8 or S-VHS camcorder has this feature. Most 8mm and VHS
models, however, do not, since there's no point to it -- the video isn't
stored on the tape in a separate Y/C format, so having an output with
separate Y/C signals accomplishes nothing. (The S in S-video stands for
"separate" as in "separate Y/C" -- Y=luminance, C=chrominance.)
Once you leave the realm of the consumer/prosumer, you get into
industrial, where you can buy just a camera (no built-in VCR) with S-Video
out. A friend of mine has such a beast, a 3-CCD unit with a dockable Hi-8
