Hello all,

I have a Sony EVW300 and I?ve always thought that the S-VHS out into a monitor was better looking than the Hi8 tapes. I just liked the way it looked.

I believe that the camera needs to be ?re-caped? based on symptoms I?ve read about. Image looks good at first then starts to dim and go out, other times it will just blink out.

I would like to run this cameras S-VHS into a capture card. My questions are: Who still works on these? Does anyone know of a good place? And is it worth fixing? Will it cost me as much as getting a new (or fairly contemporary used) CV camera with big CCDs?

Or should it go into the "ENG Team" prop box?

Thank you.

I can answer that!

Sell it for parts and move on, save your coin for a higher resolution in a smaller package.

There, I feel much better now. :)
