That deck looks alright (sans the price). Can it record from a “print to tape” type of option he uses for his camera, or would you still have to use the camera for this function? It would be good for long time archiving if you need it, but digital storage in general is pretty cheap – and never store your project in just one place!
You can get a hefty laptop for the same price with plenty of storage and an HDMI out, and you wouldn’t have to carry around a bunch of tapes. Laptop also give you a little more control over playback and you don’t have to rewind a physical tape to get back to the beginning and play again.
