I wouldn’t worry about it too much when it comes to analog Hi8…I’ve never noticed too much of a difference to really care. However, I would still go with the best Hi8 tape I could find (not digital Hi8 btw)
A good tape that it stored properly will increase the life of the highly degradable analog signal for Hi8.
