What iMac model do you have? We need the exact model number, so we know all available ports of the iMac.
Digital 8 and Hi8 are very different formats though they can be recorded on the same tape. Hi8 is analog, Digital 8 is electronically identical to DV. Be sure you know what you have.
Both can be captured to computer via a Digital 8 camera and firewire -- D8 should be, with Hi8 you'll get a frenzied argument around here about the best capture method.
