Thread: how can I transfer my analog tapes to digital?

  1. #1

    Default how can I transfer my analog tapes to digital?

    I have mounds of footage sitting around on Hi8 analog tapes that I want to get onto my computer.
    I am currently in the market for a mini dv camcorder, and it would be nice if I bought one that serves as a transfering device. Has anyone done this before? What inputs would the mini dv camcorder need to be able to do this?
    I have also heard that Digital8 camcorders can read analog footage because they use the same tape format. Is this true?

    Thanks.
    Nick D.

    An analogue input, and a firewire/DV output

    Yes, but you would need to check the specs of the specific camera model just to make sure. not all of them can read an analogue signal.
