EMI type 8 CCTV Camera

The EMI type 8 was a standard CCTV camera from the early 1960s. It used a 25mm vidicon tube and a "C" mount lens. It was available in 405, 525, or 625 line standards and it incorporated an RF band 1 modulator so that it could be used with ordinary televisions. A useful feature was the ability to operate from 12 volts DC as well as AC mains.

The price, given in Wireless World, December 1962, page 580 was £160.00
