since it's just to xfer a finite number of tapes and no other purpose, I would either try ot borrow one OR find a cheap or "distressed" hi8 camcorder (e.g., something broken on it) on ebay. --fj
My Sony Video8 camcorder bit the dust and I've upgraded to a mini-dv camcorder.
I'm left with precious family video on tapes I cannot play.
Other than going the expensive route of having them professionally transferred -- anyone have any ideas?
