If you end up using the camcorder for passthrough, set it to use 48kHz in the menus.
Yes, he should do
But applies only to the new Recording on tape
Are tapes with 32 KHz then recorded is also copied in so passthrough.

encode 48 KHz to do in postproduction

VideoHelp: DV conversion vs lossless capture - comparison (Hi8) [WARNING: auto-load!]

I haven't tried a VHS passthrough conversion with the Sony Digital8 yet, but I did capture some Video8 tapes to DV. I don't see compression artifacts jumping out at me like with Hi8.

I am still wanting to get back to converting all my VHS tapes to the best digital format recommended for easy, size, and quality but 5 months ago I started a new full-time job and totally got side-tracked and continue to get side-tracked, so hopefully I can put all the good advice from this forum to work and get my conversion done sometime in the near future. I want to put together the list of recommended equipment I will need to purchase to make it happen including Windows software and hardware (since nobody seemed to think it could be done on my iMac easily), a good VCR (if one can be found - assuming I need one but I have the Sony SVO-2000 now), etc. Hopefully everything in this thread has that covered, but without reading everything again, I remember the thread was very long, and I am hoping for a simplified list of things gathered from the thread of what is precisely needed. I hope to get back in touch with everyone on this has been so helpful. Thanks again.
