    A digital video camera is the correct answer because it is specifically designed to capture and record videos. Unlike other input devices listed, such as a scanner or graphics tablet, which are primarily used for capturing still images or drawings, a digital video camera is capable of capturing moving images and recording videos. A microphone is used for audio input, while a keyboard is used for text input. Therefore, a digital video camera is the most suitable input device for transferring video content into a computer system.

This allows users to easily input text from physical documents without having to manually type it.
