Re: Super 8 to digital

There are several video capture kits that include a device to convert your
Hi8 to a USB input source and a software application to edit the clips you
move to digital format.

I'm not able to give a suggestion as to which is better, or which is worse,
but I selected a product from Pinnacle Systems. As I recall, there were
three different products, as one moves up the price-points the features and
functions increase. I selected a mid-point product and it works pretty well,
although I have nothing to compare it to.

You can buy a video recorder for $200 that will get the job done. You can
buy a Pinnacle product for about $120, and convert your Hi8 format videos to
digital. The converter lets you burn your old movies to DVD, which is
probably a plus.
