Anyone still have 8mm film loops?

Camcorders are still =B3findable=B2 (as opposed to =B3fungible=B2) at flea markets

Now Jessica, I have a top-of-line editing VHS JVC (top loading, 6 heads - YES!!) with a wired remote that I purchased in 1981 for $1700 that works perfectly. I hate to give it up. Is it obsolete? Not to my mother to who= m I gifted it. While it has a plastic cover, most of the internals are metal - you could use this baby for a boat anchor if it didn't work. Try that with a skimpy $39 DVD unit. Technology - you're not so tough (sorry, I've had a rough day). You must be terribly rough on your VCRs. Take care. Ji= m Scholtz (PS - I'm not really a luddite, I have/build PCs, do digital editing, and DVD burning, scanning, sell and buy Porsches on e-bay, I just like to wax nostogic sometimes.) Times were much simpler back in the 70's... =20
