so let's say you're doing an informational video for a non-profit and they give you a video tape and ask, "can you use this?", i've found that you want to take a pretty good look at it before you say yes, b/c it may be 8mm instead of say, digital8, which you can use josh's cheap camera to read, as opposed to 8mm, which requires an 8mm camera, which no one has used in forever. as in, they don't even sell them at best buy anymore. then, of course, you're fucked, b/c no one will have a clue how to xfer the footage, all 2 hours of it, and you'll have to drive all the way to beaver falls on the chance they might be able to do it at wgev. grrrr....
