  • Product Info

    By far, the most popular camcorder format throughout the late 1980s up to the dawn of the new millenium.


    It all started with Video8, with its compact attributes, producing a good quality recording for its time. This was further enhanced by Hi8 and, ultimately, Digital8, which - as the name suggests - utilised a digital timecode with higher resolution, akin to mini DV.


    Some Sony camcorders were capable of recording in LP mode, effectively doubling the tape's capacity; however, many people abandoned this setting due to the reduction in recording quality.


    So many people captured precious family moments using this format; hence this is the most popular camcorder format we convert.
