Many more (nearly 5,000!) datasheets for electron tubes of all types--camera, receiving, transmitting, and specialized types--may be found at Frank's Electron Tube Pages. In particular, look for these camera tubes:
  • RCA 5826  image orthicon. Similar to the 5820, but more sensitive. Primarily for studio use.
  • RCA 1848  iconoscope. A very early monochrome camera tube. Iconoscopes were the first practical camera tubes, dating back to the 1930's.
  • RCA 1850A  iconoscope. A slightly later version.
  • RCA 5527  iconoscope. A somewhat different type of iconoscope, with a long, slender tube.
  • RCA 6198  vidicon. An early (1953) vidicon, intended for industrial and film pickup applications.
  • RCA 6326A  A slightly later (1956) vidicon, with greater resolution than the 6198.
  • RCA 6474  image orthicon. An early (1954) color image orthicon. Most likely the first tube type used in the RCA TK-40 and TK-41 color cameras.
  • RCA 7037  image orthicon. A later (1957) color image orthicon, using far less light than the 6474.
  • RCA 7038  A late 50's (datasheet issued in 10/1958) vidicon for either color or monochrome, live or film pickup.
