Capture Tutorial And More

Here's a short, competent tutorial on capturing DV footage using Premiere Pro CS3. It was produced by Talented Pixie, a firm which produces tutorials for Apple and Adobe software.

If you're in the market for tutorial materials, I recommend Total Training and Lynda.com. While both offer online tutorials I think those offered by Total Training are a little slicker and well-produced. That's no slight against Lynda.com though.

Also each requires a paid subscription. In this case Lynda.com's approach is preferable because it offers a monthly subscription plan, while Total Training offers only annual plans.

On the subject of tutorials, if you're in to Photoshop be sure to check out the National Association of Photoshop Professionals (NAPP). More than any other site, they're really figured out how to offer a value-packed membership at an affordable annual membership fee. In fact, if you are a regular B&H Photo customer, the NAPP membership will pay for itself quickly since one of the membership benefits is free standard shipping on B&H orders.

Finally, check out Kelby Training for digital photography instruction. These are basically the same folks that run NAPP but there are more in-depth tutorials on photography and lighting (and a lot more) that are very well done.
