Super 8 movies to video?

I am new to video and could use any help you can give.I thinking of getting a Canon HF20, one of the things I would like to do with this camera is capture some old Super 8 sound movies. I would like to run the movies and capture them off of the screen, would this be the right way to do this? Would there be a frame rate problem between the two formats? Would the Canon HF20 work for this?

I gather the most import part is getting a quality projector.

glenn,

If you still have a super 8 camera to play the old tapes you can buy a product called "Dazzle" basically converts analog straight from the camera, converts to digital to your computer. I also have a samsung VHS/DVD recorder (model VR357) that will do the same thing...you can record directly to dvd.

Hope this helps.

I think maybe you're thinking of 8mm or Hi8 video, not film, as we're discussing here. Super 8 is a film format, not tape. With film, you don't play it in a camera -- you need a projector. And you can't stick a cable into either a film camera or a film projector. I mean, you could, but it wouldn't do anything...

If you decide to go low-tech and film a projected image off a wall, or whatever, Virtualdub's hotspot filter is worth investigating to help even out the lighting: Hotspot Filter for VirtualDub
