I recently remembered I still have some of my old Hi-8 analog video tapes somewhere from back when I used a Hi-8 camcorder. But since I don't have the camcorder anymore, I am considering getting a Digital8 camcorder capable of playing them back and for archiving them to DV. For those unfamiliar with Digital8, it was a format Sony came out with in the late 1990s, back when MiniDV camcorders were more expensive and MiniDV tapes were more hard to find. They used the same DV codec as MiniDV did, but recorded onto 8mm or Hi-8 tapes, and would be able to import/export via FireWire. As a result, it will work with all Mac versions of iMovie and with Final Cut Pro. It was seen like an upgrade path for people with 8mm or Hi-8 camcorders. I am looking into getting a Sony DCR-TRV460, which I heard supports analog playback of Video8 and Hi-8 tapes. Any comments or suggestions?
