Philips LDK 13 television camera inside view
This is the inside view of the Philips LDK3 camera head. It contains the light splitter block, the 3 yokes and plumbicons with the head preamplifiers. This camera used 5/8 inch electrostatic focus Plumbicon tubes. This helped to keep the size and weight of the camera head low. The Deflection units were type AT1117, but I have not yet found the tube type number. In this picture note the position of the camera cable connector at the bottom rear, that goes to a large backpack which was in turn was connected to an LDK 3 CCU.
