A Sony TVR900 3CCD digital camcorder shooting onto miniDV tape, this was amongst the many items in the van load of equipment donated by Extensia the day before Elections 2003. Unfortunately it had a short life as an OB camera, with severe picture quality problems caused by a tape transport fault becoming apparent in autumn 2004. Despite spending £200 on getting it serviced, the results were not much improved, and so it has been relegated to the role of studio camera 4 except when shooting straight down a firewire cable to a computer.
