    Hi8?

    I've been offered a Hi8 camera for a good price. Is it worth it to use this format? Mostly I will be shooting home video which I want to be able to edit a little bit.

    It's a fine format, but it's definitely out of date. The picture quality will be good and you can edit it okay as long as you've got the equipment, but it will be difficult to fix/replace in the future.

    If it's a good price then I'd say go for it, but only as a medium-term option. Sooner or later you should go digital if you can.
