Converting those old analog 8mm tapes to digital

If you are looking to buy an 8mm camera to capture and preserve some of those old Video8, Hi8 or Digital8 tapes, you've come to the right place!

Whether you have 5 or 100 tapes, there are easy and affordable ways that you can tackle this task, and it can be quite fun too.

The first place to look is my comprehensive FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions) which should help answer some of the most common questions. Check it out here:
Video8, Hi8 and Digital8 FAQ

There are also professional services which will handle everything for you, but these can run up to $50 per tape, which gets costly.

The easiest way to get started, and my recommended way, is to:
Video captured and being edited in "Pinnacle Studio 18"
  • Buy (or locate, borrow or find) a camera or video player
  • Buy (or locate, borrow or find) a capture device
  • Play back and record all those old memories
If you have any specific questions, please comment below.

Good luck!
