Philips LDK15L Television Camera

The Philips LDK15 portable colour camera was of the camera class that had part or most of its electronics in a "backpack" that could be worn or positioned near the camera.
A multi-core cable joined the two together. The "box" structure at the front of the shoulder pad is a tripod adaptor. It has a bit of a home made BBC look about it!

The Lens has the usual iris/zoom servo pack on the left side and on the right side is a manual focus drive adaptor with the cable drive coming down from it.
