Well the best ones were made about 3~4 years ago, all of the higher models did, I have a TRV320, six years old and it would play Hi8mm. john
Of these older Sony Digital 8 camcorder models (DCR TRV730, TRV828, TRV830, TRV740, and TRV840), which is the most superior model in terms of picture quality and features? I am told that the 740 and 840 are the successors to the 730 and the 830, but that it is not necessarily a given that the later models would be better than the earlier ones-- true?
Also, do all of these models offer the backward compatibility to read (and convert to digital output) tapes recorded in Hi-8 analog format?
