Convert Video 8 to Digital DVD and More
With so many 8 tape formats on retail stores in the late 80s up through the early 2000s, the pickings were plentiful. From Video 8 to Hi8 to Digital 8, the evolution of the “8” tape format ushered in great opportunities for the Sony Handycam enthusiast with Video 8 being the first to hit the market in 1985.
Although there was little to no video quality discrepancy among Video 8 and the tried-and-true VHS, Video 8’s audio quality was comfortably better than non-HiFi VHS and Betamax. But it’s biggest competition during the early camcorder reign was the VHS-C, which had the slight advantage of being playable on VHS machines with an adaptor. However, Video 8 tapes did get the edge over VHS-C in terms of overall tape recording length – 120 minutes versus 60 minutes.
For almost two decades, Video 8 tapes and its successors dominated the camcorder (Sony Handycam) market before they eventually gave way to true digital formats in the 2000s. But while its time has come and passed, the memories imprisoned on your old tapes don’t have to befall the same fate; however, if left unattended they soon will. Much like all the other tape formats at the time, magnetic tape was the primary film used, and while that worked great at the time, that magnetic tape is prone to fade over time – 30 or so years on average – and that age has already passed its expiration date.
