My first video camera

This was back in the late 70's and this ancient video camera was a badly burned old CCTV camera they were tossing out at my Dad's job. He brought it home for me to play with. Together we manged to hook it to a TV and see some movement when we waved our hand in front.

The imaging tube was so badly burned you could still see an image of the office the camera was sitting in for so many years.

I eventually replaced the vidcon tube and tuned it till I got a decent crisp Black and white image.

I played with my first video feedback using this camera, had many years of great fun with it.

Somewhere around I have an OLD VHS tape with video from it, I would love to dig out and post on youtube.
