I have a lot of old 8mm tapes I'm looking to backup digitally, and with some of them I'd like to do some really minor editing. I still have an old Sony 8mm camera that has an "iLink" output / USB output. I have an older macbook that I'm not really looking to upgrade right now. Here's my question- is there any simple way to get that video from the original tape into an iPad? I am in the market for a new iPad when they launch, since I can use it for a variety of other things. But I really want to get to work on backing up these old tapes too. Is there a simple solution that is iPad friendly, or am I basically stuck going through a Mac/PC? I would like to buy a new Mac, but this one thing aside, I don't really think I would use it that much anymore. My computer needs have become extremely casual the past few years and I think buying a Mac would be kind of a waste. I was looking at some PC's too, and even though they are cheaper I kind of feel the same way. 99% of my needs are met by a nice tablet, hence me wanting to snag a new iPad soon (I sold my old one a few months back). Any advice is appreciated, thanks.
