1977 Sanyo VCM-2000 Small B/W Studio Camera
Sweet! That's the only way to describe this one too. Also fully functional, like the JVC TK-210.
This is a very small studio camera of the late 1970's. Pretty much full automatic level controls left the operator with only pointing, zooming and focusing to do his job. It uses a 2/3" vidicon tube preceded here by a Tamron 6:1 (12.5 mm - 75 mm) f 1.8 zoom lens. This lens shows up time and again under every brand name!
It has four switches ~ Power On & Off / ALC On & Off / Sync INT & EXT / Monitor Video INT & EXT. Four operator controls (knobs) on the viewfinder; Contrast, Brightness, H. Hold & V. Hold. Two screwdriver accessable adjustments are for vidicon beam and focus set. Two jacks for Ext. Sync & Video Output. Two indicator lights; Power & Tally.
HIGHLY DESIRED: Service manual, operator's manual. Anyone know the pin-outs for the DIN jack on this little fellow?
