Shirley Clarke with a Portapak camera.

Portapak made it possible to record television images while moving around.

The first portapak system, the Sony Video Rover was introduced to the market in 1967 and was usually needed to be operated by at least a pair of persons.

One who had to carry and control the camera, and one  who had to carry and operate the VCR part.
