Vintage video cameras.

Sony DXC 1200

It is very important in a museum that specializes in old video recorders, to include a selection of vintage cameras.



1965 The Sony CVC-2000. 1st domestic video camera

Sony lay claim to the first ever domestic video tape recorder (reel to reel video) with the
CV-2000. This is the camera that accompanied this VTR. It is considered to be the first
ever domestic video camera. It is therefore a very important museum exhibit.
There is no viewfinde, no mini CRT monitor, not even an optical viewfinder.
There is, however, a couple of wire squares that have to be lined up rather like
cross wires. In the satellite industry, not using a proper meter for location, just using
a compass or the sun, shadows and time of day is often called "direct reckoning"
If we were to call these sights, "pointing by direct reckoning", we would not be far
wrong! It is likely that the no-parallax errors with this type of picture framing
would be quite high.

1965. VCC-2000 camera kit and monitor.

In the pictures below you can see a cvc-2000 camera, which part of the complete vcc-2000 camera kit
with extra lenses and connection leads.

This camera is probably a couple of years after the camera shown in the Signature V system
but it is a similar size and shape with a similar lens.
This Ampex studio camera would have been used with 1 inch video recorders.
Many more pictures and notes to follow in the next few days.

1974. Sony dxc 1200 colour studio camera.

Sony DXC 1200

This large heavy camera is 700mm long. It is a medium studio camera although it is probably
about the same size as a modern full studio camera. Back in 1974 many studio cameras
where considerably bigger at the time.

There is also a dxc 1200 manual in the museum.

In December 1981 Hitachi introduced this 1 tube colour studio camera.
Horizontal resolution was 450 lines. This was very good at that time and as good as many 3 tube cameras.
The camera weighed 5.5Kg and so it was light enough to be shoulder mounted.
It used a 1-inch tri-electrode Saticon pick-up tube. It could be used as a studio camera with
an optional 5-inch viewfinder. The kit is complete with original carry case and manual.
