Achieve unique video capabilities with this Canon ES50A camcorder. Originally released in 1999, this camera records video to 8mm video cassette tapes. To digitize the content, the camera has an AV output. We are providing an AV cable that can be connected to anything that receives AV input (e.g. a VCR, an older TV, or an AV-to-USB Digitizer like Elgato's Video Capture) and a lithium-ion battery and charger so you can dive into the cinematic nostalgia right away!

Note: Moving content to a computer or smartphone will require a third-party dongle and software that allows for AV-to-USB (or similar) transfer and video capture.
