Hey! I was hoping someone could answer this problem for me😄🙏🏻

So I recently got a 90s camcorder (Sony DCR-PC5) for filmmaking purposes, and these ancient things take MiniDV tapes, along with what looks like the first memory card called a ‘Memory Stick’. Ideally, with the proper adapters and such, this Memory Stick would be far easier to use and digitize than a tape. But I’m not sure if the card can hold video, or only has capacity for still images. If you have any knowledge of of outdated Sony handycams id be most grateful🤘🏻 Thanks, and hoping for the best here. Here’s a pick of the card.

I know nothing about these cameras, but I noticed the memory stick says "8MB". This is only enough memory for a small number of still images or a few seconds of low-quality video. Perhaps Sony made higher capacity sticks???? Modern camera memory cards are more than 1000 times this big.
