I think those professional camcorders costs a bit more than £300. Somewhere around £3000. I'm not really sure. You might get something on ebay though.
If you're looking for something for filming, then I'd recommend a DSLR camera, as they're pretty good at filming these days. Canon EOS 550D costs about £550 with a standard lens (£450 for only the housing).

You won't find a professional camera for that little money. I've seen prosumer cameras from 1995 go for $500.

You can find one that looks similar (goes on your shoulder) on Ebay, i know this coz my friend found one not so long ago. He paid £10 for it.
It may not be the highest quality however, and it takes old VHS cassettes in the back which it records on to.
But it has a lovely huge lense, sits on your shoulder, and the stuff it films if not bad quality.
Just have a look on ebay, there are a few of them around still, very popular in the 1990s :)
