RCA Hawkeye HC-2 vintage camera

RCA Hawkeye HC-2 camera type MI-599500
Second generation multi-role camera with a choice of 'backs', shown above with the
HCA-1 MI-599550-A1 genlock adaptor.

 

There is some confusion over the model number of this particular camera, it is clearly numbered as "HC-1 MI-599500-" ? serial number 1154, but the catalog shows it as HC-2?

 

It's introduction was announced in the RCA "Broadcast News" number 173 page 32. available from http://americanradiohistory.com/RCA_Broadcast_News_Page_Range_Guide.htm
