HI8 Video

Does anyone know how I can capture a video from a hi8 tape+camera to a computer so that I can convert and record to a dvd?

Although I use a PCI card to convert, this product seems easier still click here

If you have a stand alone dvd recorder you could cut out the computer.

we have a hi8 camcorder if thats what you mean; here we use a pinnacle standard video card with svideo in to record video futage as we find svideo seems to get a much better picture to pc from camcorder and amuse xl sound card to do the audio on line in.

Thanks for the responses. I would probably prefer a stand alone dvd recorder. Where would be the best place to get one at a good price?

One other option to consider is to get a Digital8 camcorder. Most of these will play Hi8 tapes and provide the necessary output to the computer. You may be able to pick one up second hand.
