Museum of the Broadcast Television Camera

Pye  Mk6 vintage IO TV camera

Pye Mk6 camera side view.
This photo of the Pye Mk6 camera was taken at the Pye works and it has not had the camera number holders fitted yet, nor the small pate with the "type" number. The Iris drive motor can be seen at the front of the camera with the words "Do not lift" written on it! The motor would drive the irises of all 4 of the TV88 specification lenses in response to the position of the iris control on the cameras control panel.
