Which has better quality picture & sound?

I have some old 8mm tapes that would play in a digital 8 (convenient) & the digital 8's seems to be a little cheaper than mini DV's.

But if the mini DV's quality is better I think I would prefer it.

Any suggestions?

Mini DV...IMHO Digital 8 will go out of date so much sooner. Always go with the future.

Nothin, I asked a similar question on the Apple User's board a few weeks ago. You may find this response useful; I did:

FWIW, I bought a miniDV unit. I've been happily importing to DV since. Check that the models you look at have analog video-in capability. If not, you'll need a converter "bridge" box -- Sony and others sell them. --FY
