1968 Concord TCM-50 Small Studio Vidicon Camera
A classic small studio camera. Millions of us used these in small studios in our schools, chrches and corporate production studios over the years. This one has a one inch vidicon, five inch viewfinder, a 25mm to 100mm four to one f 1.8 zoom lens. On the side of the camera are vidicon controls for setting BEAM, FOCUS and TARGET voltages. The viewfinder has your noraml CONTRAST and BRIGHTNESS controls. There is a back focus knob for setting the proper point on a zoom lens or for easily focus a standard fixed lens if desired. I have no idea what year this camera was made, but from the looks of it, it was made in the late 1960's. This camera is fully operational and exhibits extremely low lag under adverse lighting conditions. This indicates a good design in the automatic light control circuit in this product.
NEEDED: Service manuals for this camera.
