Mini DV and Digital 8 question


Standard Member

If Digital 8 tapes are slightly bigger than a DV tape, does that mean the old Sony Handycam Digital8 will not be able to accept DV tapes to download them via Firewire?

8mm, Hi8 and Digital8 are all one cassette format.
DV is a totally different and incompatible cassette format, as different as Sony MemoryStick cards are from Sandisk SD cards.
