RCA TK-41 Color Camera

This camera was the second generation of color cameras made by RCA, introduced in 1954, shortly after the TK40. It was used in TV stations all over the country into the 60s.

We have started a long term project to restore the camera, now that we have the support equipment. Here is our progress.
