Marconi BD848 colour television camera

Marconi BD848 colour television camera
This is the second of the 3 tube Image Orthicon cameras by Marconi. It has later styling than the first one which was biased on the MkIII monochrome camera. This model uses the later MkIV style equipment.

Note the use of a single camera cable with 88 conductors and a brass BICC 101 pin connector with slow threads. The viewfinder now has the ability to tilt, a very useful attribute.
