EMI 1936 Emitron Television Camera
The 1936 camera with the short neck length Emitron tube. The small hole in the bottom of the casing is for the talkback headset.

 

During 1937 they were all modified to accommodate the long neck version of the Emitron tube.

At least one was unmodified to the long neck tube state as late at Nov. 1937 when it was used at the Lord Mayors Show in conjunction with the new Super Emitron camera.
