Notes

[1]
Features are described to distinguish between cameras from a single production run or in case of special interest. Back
[2]
Linear speeds and apertures were needed for modern features like the EVS. Linear means that with the next step the value is doubled or cut in halves. Formerly speeds like 1/250 and next 1/100 were usual. Back
[3]
In 1970/1 a shiny silver name plate with small print around the taking lens was introduced. This was just a purely cosmetic change. Later it became the sought after ‘White-face’. Back
