iMac and pass through technology for Hi8 tapes

I am attempting to fine either Canon or Sony camcorders which play Hi8 tapes so that I can convert my tapes from analog to digital, and then edit them on iMovie on my iMac.
Does anyone know some models of Canon and/or Sony camcorders that play Hi8 tapes...I know that technology is old and so I am looking for a used camcorder.
Secondly, I need to somehow, when playing the tapes, get the end product into iMovie.
Anyone have suggestions?

You're going to need to trawl through Ebay for a camcorder, but it's not going to cost you too much anyway. As for models it's very hard to say, but go for a high end (3 ccd) model and you will be ok.
As for conversion into iMovie you're going to need an analogue to digital converter like this:
