I'm assuming these are the 8mm tape cartridges, prior to Hi8 or Digital8 tapes, correct?
I am very curious as to how others have digitized standard 8mm and Super8 film reels? I have many to do and cannot afford commercial services, (and really don't trust them, either). I also have many slides to digitize, as well. I know there are several solutions out there, but wondering what SDers have used that worked well, without breaking the bank?
I bought a refurbished Sony DVD recorder for $50 and converted all my Digital8 tapes to DVD's. It is very time consuming though, but certainly a lot cheaper than using a commercial service. I used something like this:
I was waiting for Sony Vegas Platinum to go on sale at Fry's and saw this. The two features I would really like to have that this version does not support are image stabilization and white balance controls, mainly b/c my DSLR can screw up white balance from time to time and there is no image stabilization in any video it takes. Ideally I would like something that could also de-noise my videos as well but I didn't see any listing for that. I'll hold out for the Vegas Platinum 12 to go on sale to get the image stabilization and white balance controls. Platinum 12 will also offload to your GPU if that matters.
Someone posted earlier that you can get Platinum 12 for $30 AR.

Which one do you like more for virus protection?
Neither. Get any of the Norton products and you will be satisfied while at the same time not even noticing they are there.
