The camera picture on the right is taken from publicity material and is early in the development of the Mk3. Push buttons for turret rotation, a central protruding shaft for the lens iris drive, single top fan, and no side vents.

The left camera, serial number 82, is a later variant with a switch for the lens turret change, ventilation louvers on both sides and a twin fan assembly on the top. This camera has an unofficial modification to the talkback controls (top left).

This cameras is missing the magnifying lens in front of the viewfinder tube, often absent!
