I have about 15 8mm tapes from my childhood that I really want to watch. It seems that the only way to do this is to play from an 8mm camera and record to VCR, or take it to a shop and have them converted to DVD. I've already purchased an 8mm camera from ebay, but it came broken and the seller won't take responsibility.
I don't want to buy another camera, and I don't want to pay a shop $20 per tape to have it converted.
I've talked to all my friends / family but nobody has an 8mm camera. Can anyone help me out here? Any of you that are local (socal 818,805) have an 8mm camera that I can borrow to transfer these?
