    VHS camcorder and eBay, garage sale, or 2nd hand stores.

    Nope.

    You'll probably have better luck finding an SVHS camera than a VHS one, as they'll be slightly newer and slightly less disgustingly horrible quality.

    If you're looking for more of a professional quality VHS thing, you could search for an SVHS backend.

    If you just want a camera that takes "big tapes," Betacam SP is better by leaps and bounds if you look that one up.
