Dallmeyer SUPER SIX
|| from the end of 1940's to the beginning of 1970's
|| 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).
