Marconi MkI Television Camera front and Rear

Marconi MkIB Television Camera front and rear views
On the left is the cameraman's view with the turret change control in the centre and two sets of control knobs. The upper set, with their own doors are the cameraman's controls for the viewfinder, contrast and brightness etc.
The lower set are real camera adjustments, like " Image Accelerator" and the doors would normally be shut, with adjustments being made by an engineer or under the instruction, over talkback, of an engineer.

On the Right is the front view and the turret has been removed to show the front of the Image Orthicon scanning yoke.

Originally the outside of the doors and turret handle would have been gray and the rear cue light would have been the same as the other 3.
