Hi all:

 

For an upcoming piece that duplicates the look of 70's television, I need two and preferably three matched broadcast tube cameras, 70's to early 80's era. Having a devil of a time finding them available for rent. History for Hire has variations that are props with modern cameras inside, so it's not that. We would record out to outboard recorders. Any suggestions?!

Shame you're not in the UK, as this chap, Steve Harris has been known to provide and operate tube cameras for productions over here.

I have a contact here too (which may also be Harris, to be honest) but again hardly worth the shipping.

I stumbled across this company recently that has a vast range of vintage broadcast equipment for hire, some of it operational, but again UK based:
