Sony Pro DXC-1800 Video Camera Collectible
The Sony DXC-1800 was the latest evolution of the Sony single tube professional camera line and the first departure from the Trinicon tube by using a more sophisticated 2/3-inch Saticon Tube instead. The camera's physical design was considered radically new by using microprocessor technology to control many system functions such as automatic beam optimization, digital white balance, automatic black level, automatic iris and operator warnings. It had the best picture of any single tube camera at that time with 300 lines resolution and a 48 db signal-to-noise ratio. The price was about $5,000 in the early 1980s. This Sony Pro Camera is in ok to fair condition with some scuffs and blemishes from what appears to have been heavy use, the included hard plastic case is in good condition. All buttons, switches and dials turn freely. This vintage Sony video camera is untested, used, sold as a collectible and sold as is.
