RCA TK-60 (A) Television Camera

This camera was designed, first as the TK-12 and was developed into the TK-60 in 1963. By this time Image Orthicon camera design was mature and this camera has all the stability and features you would expect. The camera makes extensive use of the Nuvistor tubes (valves), mostly the RCA triode type 7586. There are also some transistors used in the power supply, the intercom and other circuits.
This picture is of the TK-60A, the modules in the TK-60A are interchangeable with the TK-60, except for the improved Iris motor and servo amplifier.
