RE: transfer of hi 8 video to digital

There are services that will do this, the basic output being made to a flash drive. Video format not specified, but probably MPEG-4. For extra money, you can get DVDs, which I would not recommend because optical disc players of all types seem to be on the way out.

There's also a device that does this, accepting your analog video and analog output and connecting via USB to a computer (Windows or MacOS, doesn't matter). I believe this generates an MPEG-4 output, which is editable by most video editing software, such as iMovie, that comes bundled with a Mac. The output can be moved around like any other computer file, from internal disc drive, flash drive, optical disc, etc.
