    If you mean you want to buy a digital camcorder to play back your old 8mm analogue tapes then there are a few of the Sony Digital8 camcorders that will play back video8 & Hi8 tapes, but not all of them.
    If you just want a cheap analogue cam to play the old tapes then get a Hi8 camcorder. If it is just for replay then a second hand unit should be fine and therefore save you a few £££'s.
