One things for certain Robbie, they won't be video cams that's for sure in 1969. I cannot quite make out what they may be though just from this photograph sorry.

And please forward your ull name. It can be 8mm cameras, 16mm for TV use, but as Andrew says, too early for video, surely?

As Vidar says Robbie, they may well be movie cameras but in those days they used real film, just like us relics still like to do!

Video was a little later I'd say even in professional circles.

Most likely real film. Bing Crosby was using video recorders in the 1950s. http://ethw.org/First-Hand:Bing_Crosby_a...ding_Revolution

Not many video recorders about though in those years and I wouldn't expect too many hand held video cameras to be in use 1969, if any??

Christ, look at the bloody size of this lot just to play a video movie!!

The 1968 Sherlock Holmes series on BBC starring Peter Cushing was shot on Video; only 5 stories have survived, the rest being wiped. I think video was pretty rare in those days; I didn't see any professional TV cameras about until the 80s.

Had another look at the photo; they could be just 35mm cameras with telephoto lenses. They look similar to the ones in the foreground.
