anyone tried this? : LUSENET : Dirck Halstead : One Thread

I currently shooting on a xl1, but am considering purchasing a older evw300 or tsc200 as a backup/quick cam. The reason why both supposadly good cameras, I like the lenses, broadcast quality...and Im hoping to take the hi8 tape buy a sony digital8 to use as a player with firewire and feed the video into my mac.

Has anyone tried this, does the quality go down. It seems like a economical backdoor. How good is the quality on those two cams? my only experience is beta and dv/dvcam.

I have just recently purchased a Sony EVW300 and it is amazing! However, I find I get better results when I am able to output directly to my S-VHS deck rather than use the hi8 format. This ofcourse is not quite feasable in a mobile situation. If you are buying a Digi8 camera to capture into you computer, you should have as-good-as-original picture quality being captured (in theory)but let me know if you do try this out, as I'm thinking of complimenting my system with a Digi8 as well, but have not had the funds so far.Hopefully in a few months tho.
