This is the first video camera that integrated the two key components: the camera and the tape recorder. Becoming, in his time, the most compact and lightest video camera.

Records on a Betamax format tape (format released by Sony in 1975).

The camera has several completely manual systems such as focus, white balance and zoom control.

The viewfinder is an optical system that allows to see exactly the image that enters through the lens through a system of mirrors and prisms - very similar to a SLR type camera.

The camera has very few controls because it does not include playback features of the tape content.

As you can see, the camera includes a case-type hard case in order to facilitate the transport of both the camera and its accessories such as the charger, batteries and tapes.
