Marconi Mk VII Television Camera

Marconi Mk VII Television Camera type B3205

A large, well built and substantial 4 tube camera with handles along both sides. The viewfinder tilts and has quick release mechanism. The construction style matches the Mk V and the Mk VI cameras. It is solid state apart from the tubes, EHT rectifiers and stabilizers. It is interesting to note that the Mk VII was described as "one of the smallest and lightest colour cameras in production in the world". It is thought that 107 were sold in the UK and 223 exported, a total of 330.

The Marconi Mk VII camera uses the BICC G101 cable or the BIW TV 490 cable.
