I've uploaded these photos for people interested in the NPR. Although I've had it for years  I've never seen another one like it. Presumably built in the 1970s (?)...provides a monochrome image.

Is that a special viewfinder?

I have been considering altering my ACL to attach a microscope camera, preferably like this, but realistically the best way would be to mount it to the actual eyepiece (for when my operator uses the steadicam).

That was marketed in 1979 for $6350, during a time when the camera package itself was $14,890.

AZ-Spectrum installs video assists on the NPR. Takes about two weeks and prices start at $1350 for monochrome.

I don't, but I do know they were sold by Soremec-Eclair in Hollywood in that time period.
