Equipment produced by "Dallmeyer".

Defunct UK optics maker

Click to see large picture Dallmeyer SUPER SIX
Period:   from the end of 1940's to the beginning of 1970's
Type:   Lenses
Quantity:   3 specimens available

Dallmeyer made a range of lenses for tv cameras. The image shows a 'Super Six' 4"-inch f/1.9. To complicate matters, each brand of tv camera needed a dedicated lens mount. The one pictured is for a Pye Mk 3 camera. Note the four studs on the top of the mount. These were used to automatically or remotely adjust the iris when the 'taking' lens was positioned in front of the image tube. The two red marks on each side of the lens are a colour code to indicate, in this instance, 'Camera' One, (BBC Bristol OBs -MCR 12 circa 1955).

Period:   from the full 1950's to the full 1960's
Type:   Lenses
Quantity:   2 specimens available

DALLMEYER TELEOG 25" inch f/5.8-32 ‘folded’ telephoto lens. Marconi MkIII fitting (type TV 88). The lens barrel unit was made by Cox, Hargreaves & Thomson Ltd. The lens itself is ex-BBC MCR 9 (Wales) These large lenses overcame length by using a periscopic method to 'fold' the light path with an internal angled mirror. The lens usually travelled in a heated box as condensation could play havoc with the picture quality if care was not taken, especially perched atop a gantry in a force ten rain storm with no easy access to maintenance.

Period:   from the end of 1940's to the end of 1960's
Type:   Lenses
Quantity:   1 specimens available

An example of a Dallmeyer DALMAC lens: 5"-inch f/3.5. This lens is dated 1951 and it fitted onto the turrent of a Marconi Mk II image orthicon monochrome tv camera. The 'sleeve' around the front of the barrel was a toothed ring, linked to an 'auto iris' servo motor. The rear attachment was a bayonet system.

Click to see large picture Dallmeyer SUPER LITE
Period:   from the end of 1940's to the full 1950's
Type:   Lenses
Quantity:   1 specimens available

Large and certainly not 'Lite'(sic), this 2kg Dallmeyer 'TELEVISION SUPER LITE' lens, 7"-inch f2.1 is dated 1948 and was used on the Pye Photicon camera range. The beautiful chromed barrel is as clear today as it was at manufacture. The only unknown is the turret mount which is certainly not that of a Pye Photicon camera. The mount is a very heavyweight bayonet type and looks to have been made as a special order. Any info will be gratefully received.
