EMI CPS Emitron 3 lens Television Camera

In this picture the left camera has a card holder that probably has a test card on it but it could just as easily hold a caption card. It also has the "wide angle" turret fitted.

The right camera is without it's turret. In use the lens changes were done by changing the complete turret lenses and all. The three thumb screws in the center of the turret released the turret for a quick change.

Note the two camera cable drums in the background and behind those the side of the OB van.

To the left, Peter Conway, Mike Payne and Peter Stillwell looking into the viewfinder, (he was responsible for the design and building of the unit) and John Jarrett, to the right. The man behind Peters shoulder in unidentified.
