Philips LDK25 Television Camera misc

On the left is the rear of a LDK25 lens with 2 connectors that mate with the ones on the camera body. Between them are two holes that would have been used with the mechanical lens drive system that was an option. The lens hung on the camera front and was locked into place by a rotating ring that engaged with the three lugs on the lens rear. This is the rear of the LDK25 control panel showing the two connector types used by Philips/Norelco for the European (upper picture) with MRAC blue rectangular connectors and American (lower picture) type with round military style connector. The same connector series are used on the rear of the CCU.
