1980 Akai VC-30US Single Tube Color Camera
Vintage: 198? Single tube color camera. The lens is an f 1. 9, 15 to 45 mm zoom with optical, "through the lens", viewfinder. The viewfinder has a diopter which allows adjusting the focus to your eye, similar to the way that binoculars work. There are two manual controls on the side of the camera, visible in the second photo. The first is for manual iris control and the second is high / noraml sensitivity control. This camera used a detachable cable that plugged into the bottom of the camera. This cable is missing, so it is unknown if it works. The imager tube is (probably) a striped target, frequency seperation, vidicon type. I have no other information on this camera at this time.
WANTED: Service and or Users manuals for this camera.
