make one out of cardboard and spray-paint it black. That’s seriously what I’d do.
All you need is a medium-sized cardboard box, poke a hole in one end and stick a paper towel or toilet paper tube through. If you want it to look better, then get a small, square shoebox lid and stick the other end of the toilet paper tube through that. The shoebox lid, if done right, will resemble a “lens” and mattebox for the camera.
when you see what it looks like and compare to a picture of a Sony DigiBeta Camcorder, more ideas will come to you.
Hope this helps.
