1978 RCA BW-003 Consumer Vidicon Camera
This is an early cnsumer camera from RCA. The BW-003 is a 2/3" vidicon camera that was intended to compliment early VHS machines and allow the consumer to shoot simple home movies. The viewfinder is a simple peep sight type with a reticule marked for either a 25mm lens or a 12.5mm lens. For close-up and/or wide angle shooting. A convenient microphone is built right into the front of the camera. Originally, this little guy had a power pack adapter of some sort. It has become missing over the years. If you know of the where abouts of one of these adapters, feel free to drop me a line. Stay tuned!
