New member,first post.
I am a still photographer but 8 to 10 years ago I was sent on an assignment around the world and bought a video camera to shoot for my personal use. It was a Sony Hi-8 and said Digital on it but it took tapes.
I am now trying to find a place that can transfer them to DVD so I can edit. Someone stole the camera a few years ago so I can't use that.
The places here in Peoria ,Ill look at me like I have 6 eyeballs. They don't know of these cassettes or have a player to do it anyway. They measure 2 inches wide and 1 inch tall and look like what used to be used in a telephone answering mach.
Is anyone here familiar with those and have any advice? It's as if they don't know there can even be video on them.
I would have never had the use for that many audio cassettes (I have 6 that need transferred).
I'm also an x crime scene tech and I know if I said to the cops that there is a crime on these tapes that there would be a way to get it off. It seems like no one here is thinking out of the box and just says, "No we can't do it."
Thanks for any help.
