I recall several years ago there was an attempt by manufacturers to produce home-use 8mm VCRs. I even recall seeing pre-recorded 8mm movies. I'm a patent attorney. Right now I use 8mm camcorders to record my interviews with inventors. To play these back at intermittant times in my office, I have to dupe the 8mm over to VHS, wasting time and resolution. I'm wondering if enough of the 8mm decks are new enough to make seeking one out something reasonable to do. When did these 8mm decks get produced?
