I'm trying to capture hi8 tapes, using Canon ES50 camcorder and pinnacle USB 500 device for analog to digital capture however the tapes are so overexposed and washed out. I don't remember seeing them like that a few years ago. I know it's not the capture device since I tried another source and it looked fine. Unfortunately this camcorder doesn't have S-Video so I'm just using composite. I'm wondering where the actual problem is here, has anyone ran into this at some point?

The capture software should offer an option somewhere to adjust the brightness, contrast, and saturation. This may or may not solve the problem, if the levels are being digitally clipped.
