That would get pretty pricey. I have probably 8 tapes with a few hours of footage.

8mm film transfer pricing, 8mm to DVD, 8mm to Hard Drive MyMovieTransfer.com

this place might be cheaper, there are home built scanner systems too that you can build....but it's pretty labor intensive.....the professional machines are pretty pricey

Get a VHS DVD recorder. I have one cost was about 90 bucks. Get the vhs adapter for the 8mm film. Then put it in the vhs dvd recorder. Put a recordable dvd in it and hit the button record.

This is how I do it.
