A large, well built and substantial 4 tube camera with handles along both sides. The viewfinder tilts and has quick release mechanism. The construction style matches the MkV and the MkVI cameras. It is solid state apart from the tubes, EHT rectifiers and stabilizers. It is interesting to note that the MkVII was described as "one of the smallest and lightest colour cameras in production in the world". It is thought that 107 were sold in the UK and 223 exported a total of 330.


There is a useful post on the Vintage Radio Repair and Restoration forum in the UK, by Paul Marshall. He details some of the background constraints of building the Marconi MkVII in 1966. This thread is located at:-
