This is a Hanimex VC600-P vidicon tube colour camera from the early 1980s. This is a very rare colour camera made to be used in conjunction with a portable VHS video recorder like all other cameras made around the time for the mainstream market. This camera gives the BEST colour images I've ever seen on an early 80s portable colour camera, the images are absolutely beautiful and the colour accuracy is absolutely PERFECT and comparable to that of a CCD colour camera!!! This camera is actually a Hitachi VK-600E rebadged as Hanimex for sales in Australia as Hanimex import film/video gear worldwide and rebadge them under their name. The Hitachi VK-600E also has been rebadged as Technicolour 412D and rebadged and also recased as Zenith VC-1200 . Below are some pics of this camera and its user manual and further below are a stack of YouTube videos I made from this camera which show it's capability of producing nice pictures.

Nyan Cat animated GIF filmed on Hanimex VC600-P
There was a viral video going around on YouTube entitled "eHarmony Video Bio" which some young gorgeous lady does a fake video bio for eHarmony dating site getting overly emotional expressing her love for cats. This viral video spawned loads of parodies and so I thought I'd jump on the bandwagon and do a parody of my own for shits n giggles expressing my love for 70s rock but instead of crying I get over excited and rock out! :D Then afterwards I talk about that cat eHarmony video and one of the parodies. I of course filmed it all on the Hanimex VC600-P for kicks.
