Sony DXC 1200P Trinicon TV Camera - Telephoto Lens Controls

The zooming and focusing gears attached to the Canon telephoto lens.
The long control rod that extends all the way to the operator end of the tv camera is removed to facilitate dissassembly of the tv camera.
Modern camera nowadays are controlled via motors and does away with the clumsy knob and rod combination. It is possible that precision electronics positioning in the 1970s are too expensive for consumer use.
