Good points Geoff,

The VHS tapes few and the 8 and Hi 8 tapes are many so I think it could be a good way to go.

Be careful about which Digital8 you buy. I got one at a discount to replace a Digital8 I was using for Hi8 and 8mm tapes. Since the first Digital8 camera I got would playback 8mm and Hi8, I assumed that the new one would as well. You know where this is going; there are models of Sony Digital8 cameras that will not play 8mm or Hi8, so be sure to check.

Thanks William it is a good point. I have in my files the Hi 8 I had years ago that worked fine with the 8 tapes. I would buy the same Sony model.

Paul,

I just installed the intensity pro card for the mac and it works well. It can capture anything that is HD, Analog or Composite. You must have a vhs player hooked up to breakout cable in the back of the card. Then set all the intensity settings.

Hum, I tried that and it did not work. The computer did not see the VHS.
