I am on MACPRO6 with Mojave and Premiere 

Could anyone suggest me the best possible hardware and how to capture my VHS stqandard tapes to premiere?

I returnerned to Amazon all the DIGITNOW! Scart Video Grabber as I 2was unable to use it.

They say it doesnt work with mojave, but it doesnt work with an older MACBOOKPRO with ELCAPITAN.

While Premiere imports erasily via Firewire DVCAM tapes I can't do so with VHS.

Any help will be very useful, I hasve many tapes and I use a PAL VHS Player which works quite fine on the TV and only has SCART outputs.

Kind regards to any kind person who would help me.
Thanks from Italy

If you have FireWire on your machine and the camera has analog in (composite) you can use the camera as a converter to capture your vhs.

Any Firewire based DV converter will work but you will have to buy one used of ebay. Below is a video link of a Firewire DV converter in action.

Most of the cheap capture devices from Amazon are useless as seen in the video link below.
