Noticed this a long time ago at the Season 3/TLOP event but Ye had people recording him with these weird cameras. After seeing how the Famous video and the countdown before it had that weird low-fi, VHS vibe I went back to watch the Yeezy Season 3 video and found something interesting.



Back in February I assumed that huge camera in the first pic was just some special camera Ye had, possibly put inside a different casing in order to hide it. But as you can see in the second pic, my man is moving a VHS tape in/out of the camera. Finally, he takes out a Super 8 camera and starts recording. I found this really weird because I assume this was part of the "constant recording" we heard about in Kim's GQ piece, but this makes no sense for that, since Kanye should be shooting a documentary or whatever in 4K+ so it's future-proof. Instead he's using VHS which is the most utter shad quality of any video recording method. It's cool as a stylistic choice for the video but horrible for a doc.

Does anybody have any info about this or any guesses as to why he would shoot things on VHS?
Does this mean the Taylor recording is a grainy piece of shit? smh Ye

Season 3 was actually shot with 2 diff cameras the arri amira and the camera you think is a super 8 is actually the Alexa mini. Both are $35k plus cameras. Close thread

Okay I understand why he did it in the famous video but why did he shoot the TLOP thing in VHS too? it's really odd to me
