BETAMAX

BetaMax cassettes were the first home media back in the late 70's.  They were considered better quality overall than the later VHS, but VHS won the home media battle because the masses chose quantity over quality...VHS had a longer record time.  Both had the same tape width but BetaMax had a smaller housing.

VHS

VHS was the home theater TV recording, and rental standard for about 25 years, before DVRs and DVDs took over.  With a recording capacity of up to 8 hours (losing quality the slower the tape speed), VHS won the homemedia recording wars back in the early 80's just a few years after BetaMax emerged on the market.

VHS-C

VHS-C became popular in the mid 80's camcoders with it being half the size of VHS, but with an adaptor it could play right in your VHS player and keep the camcorder size smaller.  

Hi8 / Digital8

Hi8 and Digital8 emerged in the late 90's when digital started to rule everything.  It still held the quality of 720i standard definition but with much clearer picture than VHS technology.  And with the advent of newer home computers and editing software, the Digital8 camcorders could capture your footage directly to your computer with ease.

MiniDV

Technology keeps getting smaller and smaller.  So do the cassette for our camcorders.  MiniDV was the first to offer High Definition for camcorders, but with only an option for an hour of record time.
