When you hear 8mm you may think of film reels, but there are 8mm video cassette formats, too. By the 1980s, the videocassette tape was by far the preferred method of video recording by the amateur consumer market. VHS and Betamax were the most popular forms of analogue home movie recording at the time, with families everywhere buying camcorders and VCRs to save beautiful memories on video.

While these two videotape formats were doing extraordinarily well, there was one major problem with their design that needed to be improved upon – their sizes.

VHS and Betamax camcorders were absolutely massive due to the need to accommodate large tapes inside the camcorders. These camcorders often weighed a lot, and when perched atop an ‘80s dad’s shoulder, they couldn’t look sillier. People were forced to lug around these awkward machines to all their important family events just to get a decent recording. That’s when the 8mm video cassette formats rolled in.

The 8mm video format was introduced by Eastman Kodak in 1984 as a smaller alternative to the larger VHS and Betamax formats. The “8mm” refers to the size of the tape, which is 8mm in width compared to the 12mm width of Betamax tape. This may not seem like a significant size decrease, but the 4mm difference made producing the much smaller Sony Handycam camcorder in 1985 possible.

These size cuts made camcorders accessible and transportable, and the popularity of camcorders grew even more with these improvements. Of the 8mm tape formats, three models were produced. The first one produced was called Video8 and was completely analogue in all its functions. The introduction of Video8 was received well by consumers, and so the second model, Hi8, was born.

All About the Hi8 Tape Format

The Hi8 tape format was the second model of the three 8mm video cassette formats to be released and was almost entirely analogue, like its predecessor the Video8, except for some digital sound recording capabilities.

Hi8 tapes had a similar design to previous tape formats – a length of 8mm-wide magnetic tape wound around two spools enclosed in a hard cassette shell to keep the sensitive tape protected. In many ways, the Hi8 format is like a miniaturized Betamax tape with higher resolution.

The Hi8 tape format was produced by Sony in competition with JVC’s Super-VHS (or S-VHS). Both formats sported increased recorded bandwidth of the luminance signal, allowing for higher-resolution video recording. The two formats were comparable in many ways, but the Super-VHS had much longer recording capabilities.

Difference between 8mm Tape and Hi8 Tape

First Things First

Where does the 8 come from with these two film formats? That question is easy to answer: it comes from the width of the film. Both Hi8 and 8mm use film that is 8 millimetres wide, which is a little under half of an inch. Both formats come in little cassettes that look really similar to audiotapes.

Hi8 and 8mm tapes are actually pretty recent developments. These formats were invented around the 80s, and they had a big benefit: They were like VHS tapes but much smaller. This one fact made them awesome for camcorders since they were smaller and lighter than previous formats. Not to mention, in the 80s, everything was getting downsized.

How They’re Different

The difference between Hi8 and 8mm tapes is the resolution of recording. Hi8 was a newer technology, so it had better video quality than 8mm. To give it a present-day comparison, it would be like the difference between HD and 4k television. Hi8 was also backwards compatible, which means that you could use 8mm film in it, but you couldn’t use Hi8 film in an 8mm camera.

To use another analogy, it’s like Playstations. A PlayStation 2 can play Playstation 1 games, but a Playstation 1 can’t play Playstation 2 games. That’s how Hi8 and 8mm tapes work.

Even though they look similar, they use a slightly different way to encode the data on the film, which is where the compatibility issues come from. Also, sound works a little bit different on the two formats.

If you’re interested is neato factoids, airlines used to use 8mm film cassettes for their in-flight movies. How cool would it be to get a collection of those old, miniature tapes with your favourite 80s classic movies on them? I would probably pay pretty good money for a copy of Big Trouble in Little China on 8mm since that’s probably my favourite movie of all time.

Nowadays, 8mm tapes are old news, and nobody uses them anymore. Sony stopped making them in 2007, so unless you ordered a stockpile of these miniature cassettes and are hoarding them for some weird reason, there’s not really a way to get them any more

    First time purchase..quite apprehensive about the seller and ecom site..hence opted for COD. However experience is as good as Amazon….lots of tracking status communication…on time delivery…and getting a product which was not available anywhere…thanks…just a suggestion…too much of unnecessary scrolling in web pages..make the site user friendly
