There were no Hi8 cameras or decks that had a Firewire output. However, Digital8 camcorders do have iLink (Sony's name for Firewire) output. Look for a used Digital8 camcorder - they will also playback Hi8 and regular 8 video. If you use a non-digital de3vice, such as a Hi8 camcorder or deck, you'll also need an analog-to-digital converter.
