Any interest in Star Wars betamax?

So I don’t have a beta player and not sure if I ever will go for one. But I know some people here like to have all the versions on home video captured for comparison purposes. Some people have used the early vhs versions as a clue to what the film looked like before it faded.
But since Betamax was better, wouldn’t that be a better tape to capture off of?

I’m not really interested in payment for this and I don’t expect it to go for much on ebay anyways. I got it free at a garage sale anyways.

But if someone has a high end Betamax deck and wants to make a capture and would be willing to post screenshots (especially to compare with the same vhs of the time), I’d be willing to send it to them.

High end Betamax deck? You mean, like, with HDMI ports and stuff?

Tomorrow I take delivery on an EDV-9500, the best ßetamax-compatible player ever made, and one of a very few to have S-Video connectors. My plan is to take several copies, multiplex each and average them (excepting damaged parts). Every copy would make the project better.
