    I have a few Hi8 tapes from years ago that need to be transferred to VHS, and they can't be done without having a Hi8 Camcorder!

    Years ago @shotokan101 so kindly lent me their camcorder, however I doubt they are still running that service :)

    Sorry mate, I was supposed to let you know ages ago. I have a few summer activities going on, so renting out your camcorder wouldn't be fair on you as I wouldn't have time to go through the tapes yet.

    Thanks

    Not a problem - how long do you think that you would need it for anyway?
    No real rush to get it back as only use it for these sort of requests at the moment though like a mechanics xar I haven't got round to digitising my own tapes yet :laugh:

    Going on holiday next Tuesday though so you will have to wait till we get back now I guess

    Should be able to get it out to you last week in August if you want

    Hi Shotokan101 (Jim),

    I have a number of Hi-8 tapes to digitise, I do have a Hi-8 camcorder but the tapes won't play on it and so it would be really useful to try another camcorder to determine whether tapes or camcorder at fault.

    Is your camcorder on loan at the moment if not could I join the queue?

    Thanks,

    Bob

    Hi Bob - saw your other post on the classifieds

    No not on loan at the moment but waiting for a repky above.

    Happy to add you to the list though as noted above won't be able to sort it out till I get back from holiday.

    As you are a new member I would need a security deposit of £50 and I will refund £35 on safe return of the equipment

    Hi shotokan,

    That would be great thanks, let me know when you are back and how to deal with the money side of things as you say I'm new and this will be my 1st transaction.

    Can I just ask that if it's not in working order when I receive it, how does this work?

    Bob

    Hi Bob,

    Obviously I will check the Camcorder before posting and will send it Insured Delivery but I'm not sure how to prove to "you" that it's working before I post it if that's what you are asking ?

    If it arrived damaged (as opposed to just not seeming to work) then we would obviously claim against the Courier Insurance - if there's no visible damage then I'm not sure what the process would be.....

    No that's great, just never done this type of thing before and so trying to understand it all.

    Look forward to hearing from you when you're back, enjoy your holiday :)

    Not sure who needs a camcorder and who's sorted

    I've got a Samsung 8mm with Hi8 playback

    It works play and record but the viewfinder is just white noise , comes with power supply and scart adapter as well as the lead with 2 phono plugs on it

    I've tested play and record by connecting it to a TV and it's working fine so Ok for editing

    £30 inc delivery
