Sears color video camera. I don't know how old it is but I will estimate early 80's. Seems to work perfectly (outputs color composite video through an RCA plug) although there appears to be a slight bit of 'ghosting' when items in the field of view suddenly move but only lasts for about half a second.
Lens has manual zoom, focus, and iris rings. Lens is threaded but I don't know much about this sort of thing. It may be a standard thread if there is such a thing for this type of lens. There are a few slight discolorations in the coatings on the lens but I do not see any artifacts of this in the video images. There are some spots on one side of the body looks like some tape residue. This is only cosmetic. No cracks or breaks anywhere. Just some minor paint wear.
Has hi/lo video gain switch. Built in microphone. External mic jack. Black and white viewfinder with adjustable brightness and contrast controls. Color temperature adjuster. Has a shoe for a light and a standard 1/4-20 threaded socket for tripod mounting and also a detachable handle with wrist strap (forgot to include in photo) which also has a 1/4-20 threaded socket in it's bottom.
Comes with power supply and all cables. All plugs and jacks are labeled for easy identification.
An experimenter's delight. Maybe convertible for astrophotography? Maybe the lens can be converted to a finder or spotter scope?
Here's what I'm currently hunting:
2 or 3 decent 1.25" Plossls in 5mm to 20mm range.
1.25" laser collimator
25mm to 30mm or bigger right-angle finder with bracket and plate (if needed)
1.25" broadband or 'skyglow' filter
1.25" moon filter
A USB webcam worthy of conversion for astrophotography or one already converted
Let my know what you have or make me an outright cash offer including shipping. Can provide more pics on request.
CONUS only please
