From Product Literature

A new dimension in sight and sound recording has been achieved with a miniaturized Videocorder, now able to be carried over your shoulder and a solid state TV Camera that is hand-held, trigger-ready to shoot "live" action, indoors or outdoors.

There are no limitations with your portable Videocorder and Camera. And, this is no "adaptation" of standard models! The DVK-2400 Battery Operated Videocorder uses the ᄑ"wide magnetic video tape, running at 7 1/2 ips . . . the same used with the latest Videocorder models. The tape you take on your DVK-2400 model is playable immediately, or at a later date on any Sony Videocorder, the most popular video tape recording system available today,

The Battery Operated Videocorder, in a comfortable, compact shoulder-pack weighs a mere 11 pounds! It goes where you go and is completely solid state. There are no wires . . . no cables ... no converters ... no limitations as to where and when you can record sight and sound.

The Hand-Held TV Camera is simple to operate. A dynamic microphone mounted on top of the camera picks up your audio . . a built-in 1-inch TV screen Viewfinder helps frame your picture and shows you exactly what is being taped. There is a remote-control trigger on the camera handle that starts you recording, immediately! One simple cable connection between camera and Videocorder and your system is complete, and ready to operate. The lens on your TV Camera is Sony's 16-54mm, F-2, C-mount, Zoom.

The potential and applications of the DVK-2400/VCK-2400 Videocorder and Camera Ensemble are limitless. Here is the Videocorder that goes anywhere you go!
