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!
