I have a 5 year old Sony TR501E Handycam video recorder and would like to digitise the image off the tape from the original camera. Can this be done at all or is it a case of starting again with a new digital camera?
There's 2 ways to go. Either new dv digicam as suggested; or buy capture/video card, but to get decent captures you have to spend £100+ on card. However, most Sony dv cams do an analogue passthrough which converts the Hi8 to dv and send to pc thus cutting out capture/video card.
