    A sony dxc 1200? Mid 70's single tube? Last I heard, those were
    being thrown away in the 80's & 90's.

    Might you be interested in a Hitachi FP-10 single tube cam?

    Yes, I might be. Is the camera in good working order? Also is it a
    broadcast camera? Is it large like the Sony? How much does it weigh and
    roughly what year is it from? Is it color? Thanks, Tom

    You really should go for an a classic RCA TK-41. It has plenty of tubes
    and can keep you cozy warm in cold northern climates.

    Yeah, but you need a fork lift to move it around, and it needs it's own 20
    amp circuit.

    How about an RCA TK-76 field camera. It weighed about the same
    as a concrete block but was designed to be used on your shoulder.

    I have 2 Hitachi FP15s. One is missing it's viewfinder and I haven't
    seen the lenses lately. If they do work, they probably don't work very
    well (they never did), but they were intended for broadcast, but they
    have 3 tubes, and one even has a CCU.

    I'm not aware of any single tube cameras that would
    have been even marginally acceptable for broadcast.

    What year are those from? Do they both work? How much would you want?
    How much do they weigh?

    Who were you answering? Me? Try to quote some of the previous post so
    that the "conversation" can be followed.

    Yes, the camera works. Needs sunlight illumination, studio lighting is
    too dark. It's a portable color camera. Not all Sony's are large.
    Circa late 70's(?). Used for some small-market broadcasters, but never
    for network.

    The FP10 is NOT a large, diesel kick-start type of camera.

    Camera, CCU, power supply & case weighs a lot. Shipping costs will
    kill you. Whereabouts do you live?

    De-spam my addy & email me if you want to chat some more.

    Stan.

    That's nice. May we assume you wish to match it with another one?
    May we also assume you have no intentions of actually producing TV with
    them?

    }Have no idea how to despam your addy.

    Well, my email addy should appear to you as:
    From: (Stan)

    Upon examination of it, we find the following: "delete-this-crap-"

    This anti-spam prevents spammers from automatically harvesting my email
    address & sending me junk. If you delete "delete-this-crap-" from my
    address, your email will get through.

    Where do get "uppity" from in Stan's post? To me, those were reasonable
    questions.

    Try counting the number of questions I politely asked you that you
    never answered.

    Did you check eBay? I ignore Sony Trinicons there regularly.

    Why on earth do you want such a thing? You can likely get a
    brand-new $99 survelience camera that would out-perform those
    old single-tube color cameras. They may be hard to find because
    they are all at the bottom of landfills.

    Without some explanation, your question sounds like you're not
    familiar with what those old things were compared to what is
    available today.
