DV-2400 Portapak Recorder JDH-C3-ORB13-8325 NEW
For sale: Sony DV-2400 Portapak Recorder.
The Portapak is a battery-powered, self-contained video tape analog recording system. Introduced to the market in 1967, it could be carried and operated by one person.
Earlier television cameras were large and heavy, required a specialized vehicle for transportation, and were mounted on a pedestal.
The Portapak made it possible to shoot and record video easily outside of the studio without requiring a crew. Although it recorded at a lower quality than television studio cameras, the Portapak was adopted by both professionals and amateurs as a new method of video recording.
Before Portapak cameras, remote television news footage was routinely photographed on 16mm film and telecined for broadcast.
Not tested, sold as is for parts or restoration.
