Type:   Pan & Tilt Heads
Quantity:   12 specimens available

Still in use somewhere, the innovative Vinten Mk 3 Pan & Tilt head used risers and cams only (no fluids) to maintain the centre of gravity. This made the tilting of heavy cameras relatively easy. Indeed, if correctly mounted, a camera could be left at any tilt angle without lock off. Our picture shows designer Bill Vinten inspecting an example of his invention.

Period:   from the end of 1980's to the beginning of 1990's
Type:   Broadcast TV cameras
Quantity:   2 specimens available

The Link 130 was a mid- 1980s camera that never made it beyond a dozen or so 'trial' deliveries to broadcasters (some to BBCTV and Swedish TV amongst others). The Link 130 had many 'auto' features and used three 2/3rds lead oxide colour tubes, but the camera was plagued with software problems including 'lock outs' and niggling faults such as the cue light effecting the picture. Also, by the end of the 1980s, all the major broadcasters were considering switching to CCD studio cameras. The camera pictured is an ex-museum display with a non-standard repro lens unit (with space to house a small ccd camera)and a fixed viewfinder unit with an implant tube. Because the camera is only a shell and thus lightweight, it is ideal for theatre productions etc. The camera here is sitting on a Vinten 459 lightweight pedestal with an additional 'steer' wheel.

Period:   from the beginning of 1980's to the beginning of 1990's
Type:   Broadcast TV cameras
Quantity:   2 specimens available

The famous 'BETACAM' design was the popular Sony ENG 'stand alone' camera kit, whereby the camera, power supply and vt recorder (BVV 1PS) were combined in one unit. Launched in 1984, this camera employed a single Trinicon tube(Saticon) which delivered upwards of 400 lines of horizontal definition. The camera/recorder had no playback capability and so tapes needed a separate player. With an adaptor, the BVV 1PS recorder could also be used to record from other cameras. Our Betacam (still in working condition) was used by a regional broadcaster on local news.
