On a fleemarket I found a nice, old camrecorder to provide me with moving images for ATV experiments.
It is a Sony Handycam from around 1990. It is a camera/recorder using Video 8 tapes. At the time a revolutionary device because of its palm sized dimensions and good picture quality.

The Handycam delivers a composite video signal (yellow cinch plug) which I can feed directly into the ATV transmitter (with the ALPS VCO)

Sony still uses the brandname "Handycam" for its current digital cameras:
