Hey, I’m they guy to talk to about that. First of all, your going to have to clarify “Super 8 mm Video”. Unless I’m mixed up, there is no Super 8 Video. Super 8 is FILM, then there’s 8mm Video, Hi-8 Video, and Digital-8 Video (Sony’s attempt at bridging the digital gap).
If your talking about Super 8 FILM, then it won’t be easy.
If you’ve got one of the 8mm VIDEO permutations, what you need is a computer with video capture hardware, this can range from a simple TV Tuner card to a high-end video editing capture device. Also, you need the appropriate capture software. Essentially, this just lets you input a video signal, from your camera or video player (VCR, 8mm VTR, etc.) and capture to a computer file (Quicktime Video, mpg, etc…). If you decide to go this route, your looking at some computer upgrades, and I could talk you through the particulars if you want to email me here at Unicyclist.com.
If your looking for somebody to do it for you, you can find a video production house (check your local Yellow Pages, or find somebody online like this ) Usually, production houses can take care of whatever your needs are, but I don’t know what the prices look like. If what you have is FILM, this is probably the only way to go.
And, finally - and I take no offense if you aren’t comfortable trusting “some guy from the web”, but I do this sort of stuff for a living. (I’m a multimedia specialist at Georgetown University’s new “New Media Center”). If it’s 8mm video you’ve got, I could capture it for you. The sketchy part is mailing me the tapes. I’ve been looking for something to use to work on my editing skills, so I might even be able to do some editing for you if I have time. Unfortunately, I don’t have access to Hi-8 or Digital-8 players, so if that’s what you’ve got, I can’t help you.
Hope this isn’t too much information. I don’t often get to combine my passions for video production and unicycling.
