The problem is that whatreallysets thoseshouldermounted cameras apart as big fancy TV cameras is the Glass. The Glass is also most of the price. You can get a body for cheep, you can get a shell of a body if you wanted, but you cant get a shell of alens. If you could find a badlycrackedlens, it would be very cheep (probablygiving it away) but those are hard to find as they are unusable so are thrown out. Not sold on e-bay.
I second robgrauerts IDea, find a shoulder mounted VHS camera, not the best, but cheep.
