1969 RCA PK-501 Vidicon Surveillance Camera
Here is a nice video camera from the late? 1960's or possibly early? 1970's. This is a classic one inch vidicon based surveillance video camera. It is fully self contained and requires no external support equipment, like a sync generator or CCU. This particular specimen is in absolute show room condition and reeks of electronic preservative. That's a smell that takes me back to my teen age years when I would obtain many military surplus items with that same smell. The lens is a standard 25 mm, f 1. 9, fixed focal length type. The back panel is virtually self explanatory with its video output connector, beam and focus tweaks and a .6 Amp fuse. Very simple to operate, this camera is a rare, fully functional, beauty!
NEEDED: Service manual and more general information for this camera, please.
