The IVC 7000P was described (with hyperbole) as 'setting your cameraman free'. Free, possibly to encounter back strain. No little weight, this mid-1970s 'portable' three-tube lead-oxide colour camera came in at over 12.5kgs (not the 7 claimed) and that was without the 'control backpack' unit which added at least another 12 kgs. The camera was tethered by a polypole cable and had an optional 'Studio Adapter' rig with a 7" inch viewfinder. UK users included Anglia TV, Grampian Television, Thames Television, Southern Television and LWT. One of our cameras was used by TVS (TeleVision South) and the other by a facilities company. The IVC 7000P picture quality was described as 'awful'.
