I have successfully used SuperMac VideoSpigot with a VHS camcorder and
a Quadra 700 without any problems; worked fine. Spigot has composite
(RCA) and, I believe, semi-component (S-video) input jacks so it
doesn't matter waht type of camera you use. It should have no problems
working with anu NuBus Mac II. Bad news is Spigot is discontinued.
Combined SuperMac/Radius now sells VideoVision Studio card in the price
range of 3 grand.

So try to find Spigot for the right price - you won't be disappointed.

Hope this helps
