Perfect for Analog to Digital Transfers

rwburnhamiv, Ebay
12 July 2012
  • Summary: I purchased this camcorder to transfer some old VHS and 8mm tapes to my computer. Using a firewire cable, I was able to transfer all my 8mm tapes directly to my computer. I was able to use Windows Movie Maker to capture the footage via firewire, and the software was able to control the camera. This was great because I could skip segments that I did not want to transfer. I also hooked up a VCR to the camcorder and recorded those onto a digital Hi8 tape.

  • Summary: On the product site it says, "...camcorder may not be recognized by the computer when connected. In this case, check to see if there is an updated driver available for your model." There are no device driver updates available for this camcorder beyond XP. So, if you want to run it on any PC with Vista or Windows 7, that PC will not recognize the camera.

Great Idea for a Camcorder - Plays Older 8mm and Hi8 Tapes

Nuknuk, Amazon
19 March 2009
  • Summary: When I got this camcorder, the technology just started going to the miniDV's. At the same time, I have several 8mm and Hi8 home movies that were taken with an analog camcorder. This was an easy solution to digitize the old school tech so I can edit them and burn them to DVDs. I use a Macmini or Macbook to edit the movies. For new movies, it does not matter if you use the Hi8 or 8mm tapes.
