Best vintage camcorder for THAT 80s, grainy VHS look?

Recommended Posts

Hey guys! I'm exploring the lofi side of film starting with Super8 (Pro8mm is currently modding my Canon 1014XLS). I'm also trying to find a RELIABLE, vintage VHS camcorder. I was thinking about the JVC GR-C7 but heard that parts are impossible to find. I'm curious if anyone knows a. Someone willing/able to work on these models? or b. A camera with that "look" but that might be easier to maintain long term? And no, I'm not going to use filters to recreate the look. Just wanted a fun, quick way to shoot real VHS film for a few niche videos I'm working on. Thanks!
