Actually I'm going to have a hard time trying that since I haven't even seen a Hi8 recorder over here in europe for well over ten years. I wouldn't know where to begin to look for one. Perhaps a technical museum somewhere. And I guess back when it was used most of us did things on S-VHS instead since the PAL signal on analog equipment was so much better. I would have loved a better success story for DigitalS/D9 (close to uncompressed 4:2:2 on VHS tapes).

Of course DV won the battle because it had the small size advantage, firewire integration (SMPTE timecode) and since it's digital it's much easier to lock into a higher quality post production process than any analog format. You can predict artifacts in a compression algorithm but you can't predict noise in analog material.
