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?
