(1) Notes: Dates are tricky!, do you take the design date or the date entered service? It's all a bit vague.
(2) Very early cameras did not have model numbers and were often, helpfully, called "the Camera"
(3) The term "Super Orthicon" used by Fernseh. I think this is a 3" Image Orthicon.

"I.O." is the abbreviation for Image Orthicon, a large camera tube in 3 inch and 4.5 inch sizes.
"Plumbicon" is a registered trade mark of Philips, as well as being a Lead Oxide camera tube!
