    If it's a minidv camcorder then you will usually import your video at actual play speed. 1 hour of video (normal length of a mini dv tape) will take 1 hour to extract. 1 hour of uncompressed DV is about 13 GB. You'll need to select some sort of output format to transcode to in order to shrink that. That all depends on your needs.
