    Here is a camera video of a rare Betamax - the Pioneer model VX-90. This unit came out in 1985 and was an exact clone of the best-selling Sony Betamax of all-time, the SL-HF900, Both units offered record speeds of BII and BIII, but could be modified to record at B-Is, which gave only 90 minutes on an L-750 Beta tape...but the quality was great!! I had two of these units over the years and wound up selling them - they recorded fine, but had a soft picture in playback.
