|LabGuy's World: Javelin X-400

This machine is really a Sanyo model VTR-1200. It has some special features that make it unique. First, this machine has four video heads. Two for record/play and two flying erase heads for editing. The brochure claims that it can record at 1/7 speed for time lapse recording or playback standard speed recordings at 1/7 speed for slow motion analysis. Though my machine is operational, I can not get these lower speeds to give any gratifying results. Maybe it just needs a tune up. Tape interchange between all of my working VTR's is the worst on this VTR. Still, this particular X-400 is in excellent, operating condition and looks great!
