You don't need S-Video in to capture, you need S-Video out and no CCD has nothing to do with capturing a tape to computer, Anyway most camcorders have one S-Video socket used as input and output just by changing from recording to playback.

3 CCD were generally higher end camcorders (than 1 CCD models from the same time frame), and generally provided better video as a camcorder used for initial acquisition (shooting). The CCDs are not used for video playback or for recording video from an input jack.

You need S-Video to USB card, search the forum for USB capture device.

No, It's the opposite, assuming using a good capture card, not the easycrap.
