1972 Shibaden HV-70SU Vidicon Small Studio Camera
Here is a small studio camera from the early 1970's. It uses a one inch vidicon tube for pickup and has a detachable three inch CRT viewfinder for aiming. These were used in many schools and corporate video studios of the time. This particular unit is in excellent fully operational condition. The lens is the good old f 1.8, 25mm. It has switches to select internal or external sync, vertical sync only or composite sync viewfinder input select of either direct camera video or VTR playback video. Electrical adjustments include: monitor brightness and contrast, camera beam, focus and target settings. There is also a mechanical focus adjustment that "racks" the vidicon tube forwards and backwards for setting the proper focal point for the lens being used. Internal sync is used for stand alone operation. External sync is used with some VTR's or with a Special Effects Generator in a multi-camera operation.
