Still have a Hi-8 Betamax camera that we use as a player and about a few dozen cassettes of videos, mostly of our baby, plus a shelf of VHS cassettes and a VHS recorder. That baby is almost 20 now.
We plug the camera into our top rated (in 1995) 32" Sony Trinitron TV, which still works great. We will get one of those new-fangled HD flat screens one of these days, I suppose.
By the way, can anyone recommend a Hi-8 digitizing service?
