1980 JVC GX-33E video camera

This is a JVC GX-33E saticon video camera from 1980. This would probably be JVC's first range of portable VHS/camera units and maybe one of the first saticon tube cameras. This camera works though the colours are a bit weak particularly on the reds, and in bright conditions the highlights overbloom as violet and the darker areas go green, this would make great for visual effects though no good for general usage. I adjusted the iris and nothing happened so I guess the problem might lie in the iris adjustment.
