Looking for a Hi8 camera or deck

I have a collection of Hi8 video tapes. My camera died many years ago so I am in the market for a camera or Hi8 tape deck I can use to play them back for digitizing. There are a few on Ebay but nothing that caught my eye. I would assume that whatever is offered it would also have the appropriate power supply. I have other family members in the same boat.
Thanks

Same here. I've thought of having it done commercially but I couldn't edit before hand (to reduce wasted footage), and the cost would probably be prohibitive. Anyone know?

I have one I bought several months ago for this very reason. Everything is there. Works great. Never tried to record using it but assume it works also.

I would be willing to sell for the right price

I bought mine on ebay. Looks new and works great. I bought a 8 and super 8 camera and projector for next to nothing.

Got a working one from Goodwill. Found it on the shelf and for the price took a chance, and it worked. Use it for transfering friends tapes. Also don't forget to look on Goodwill website too.

I was in a similar situation years ago, and I found what I needed on eBay - 8mm projectors and slide projectors.

Hi8 -
