 CPS Emitron camera lens view

EMI 4499A CPS Emitron camera
This camera was photographed, in September 2015, in the "reserve collection" of the National Media Museum, Bradford, England. Pictures 8, 9 and 10. It is on loan from the EMI Archives.

It is in very good restored condition. John Trenouth says:- It was restored many years ago at EMI's and looks as if its just come off the production line. However, like the BBC examples, it’s missing one of the side cover plates. As many of the period photos of the camera in use show these covers missing it suggests overheating?

One or more lenses are missing and the buff label says "Radioactive Lens removed to radiation store"!
