I have this late 1970s, black-and-white, tube-based analog video camera on the way from an eBay seller.
$10, including another camera, a cool Yashica Super-8 movie film camera.

I have an even older similar model already (RCA BW001)?, and look forward to having a "semi-matched pair" to do some two-camera setups, just for the fun of it.

They have C-Mount lenses, so lens options are massive, especially with adapters.
All of my Nikon "F-mount" SLR lenses will fit, with an adapter I already have, for example.

I might eventually even shoot a YouTube video or two with these, subject unknown.
Maybe once I digitize all of the family's old 8mm home movies, I'll make a narrated YouTube video titled "What undiagnosed autism looked like in the 1970s".
Narration will be needed, because my Dad didn't spring for the sound version of Super-8 back then, so all of our home movies are "Silent Films".
