The one  is the Angenieux Evershed.
Television Zoomar Lenses
Television Zoomar Lenses greatly facilitate programming by eliminat­ing many problems of camera loca­tion and by reducing the number of cameras required to cover an event. Two Zoomar lenses are available to fit all RCA Image Orthicon Cameras for studio or field operation.
The Angenieux Evershed has a basic range of 35 to 350mm at a speed of f/3.8 and a transmission of T /4.5. It will zoom through its en­tire range at any object distance from 3 feet to infinity. The resolu­tion and frequency response of the lens makes it the equal or superior of most fixed focus lenses.
The Angenieux Zoomar is a small, lightweight lens that zooms from 1.6 to 16 inches at a speed of f/5.O. Its range of object distance is from 5 feet to infinity. The lens fits all 1.0. cameras, color or mono­chrome, and normally requires no lens support. A preset focus control on the pan handle and a new fly­wheel zoom control provide easy operation. An interchangeable adap­tor or new turret plate are required if this lens is to be mounted on RCA Type TK·IO, 11, 30, 31 or 14 Cameras.
Both Zoomar lenses are designed for use with 4 1/2-inch Image Orthi­con cameras. An accessory inter·changeable adaptor is available to permit use of the lenses with 3-inch Image Orthicon TV cameras. All zoomars are color balanced and color corrected. The lenses are moderate in size and weight and are designed to mount directly on the camera lens turret. Zoom and focus control are provided by means of a rod which passes along or through the camera to the rear. Zoom adjustment is per­formed by moving the rod in or out, and focus is adjusted by rotating the same control rod. Both lenses have a geared iris ring for operation by the iris drive mechanism of an RCA TK­60 Camera. A series of converters for range extension are available for use with either type zoom lens to allow increased versatility.
