We have pictures

So, take one working Marconi MKIII mobile power supply (see previous entry); add one camera control unit (CCU) and a picture and waveform monitor (PWM) mounted on our new “scaffolding” construction.

Add some cables and a MKIII camera head, cross fingers, eyes and other appendages and switch on!

Result: A picture!! It needs some work yet though – some more capacitors to change yet in the viewfinder and there’s a bit of wiring tidying to be done in the CCU. A couple of niggles still to sort out too in the PWM and the camera field scan isn’t as linear as it should be (more caps, no doubt . . .).

A second camera should not now take long as given a working ‘test fixture’ it’s all so much easier.

The business end of the setup – a Marconi MKIII camera.

“Grandstand” anybody?
