Period:   from the full 1970's to the full 1980's
Type:   Broadcast TV cameras
Quantity:   3 specimens available

The 'Handy Looky 77' appeared in 1978 and was offered to broadcasters as an 'ENG' camera. These were early days for electronic news gathering equipment. The HL 77 had no on-board record capability, no on-board battery and overall, was rather heavy. Using three 'Saticon' tubes, our rather careworn example was alleged to have 'filmed' the 1980s Brixton Riots as well as several rather more sedate feature programmes for BBC East.
