Created especially for IBC '97 in Amsterdam this unique camera is an Image Iconoscope camera using a Cathodeon Photicon tube from 1948 powered by modern solid state electronics developed especially for the task. The result is iconsoscope pictures of the pre-war type exhibiting all the 'text book' problems of 'tilt and bend', low sensitivity etc. The top picture is of the camera head under construction, the lower left picture is of the Image Iconoscope itself and the lower right picture is an off screen image from the camera. The camera is still operational.
