Movie of the TV color ZENITH 16Z8C50

Hello.
I made this movie on the TV ZENITH 16Z8C50 I repaired.
The images are due to bad economic camera I have.
Live images are perfect. (after five minutes of heating the tubes)
Once again I thank Phil for giving me the schematic.

Very nice Love the music too, I would have to confess I listen to the Disko channel on the satellite sometimes when Im working on old set.

The sync issue with the camera is interesting. I dont get that at all with the modern digital cameras. Maybe its because of the frame rate..? your camera is PAL and the ones sold here are all NTSC.
Looking at your videos of the portacolor I dont see it, are your portacolors PAL?

Just previewing the movie as I speak, great restoration and great music, I believe the discotized Wizard Of Oz music was from Meco's "Meco Plays The Wizard Of Oz" album. In regards of the camera, I believe you'll get better picture results using an old vidicon tube colour camera from the 70s/80s as the lag will compensate for the difference in frame rate and also I believe it will also eliminate that moire effect, I have used my 70s/80s vidicon/saticon colour cameras on my computer screen and the pictures are really good!!!

Does the European Portacolor have a front panel tint control? If so, is it used to minimize the Hanover Bars because of the the SIMPLE PAL decoder?
