I’ve noticed watching NBC programs such as Saturday Night Live, Fallon and Seth Meyers along with other shows such as those on CBS that the box camera lenses are two tones. Usually it’s the front part of the camera that’s black and the rest is beige (Canon and Fuji seem to sell either beige or black only cameras). First is this a weird option (I’f purchasing I would want one tone), a salvage job done at the studio or done back at the service center?
Also are cameras lenses user serviceable or do they have to be handled at a repair facility? Now I know cameras can be repaired to an extent at the station or studio. However lenses to me seem like a completely different beast where any imperfection and dust would affect the picture.
I have not seen the lenses configured that way in the Today Show and for some MSNBC studio cameras but for fixed jobs they use the same DigiSuper 27. I’ve also seen the compact DigiSupee 22xs
in use at MSNBC and Studio 3C for Nightly News along at many network affiliates (almost all every network O&O uses/used them.

Don’t let anyone treat you like you’re a VO/SOT when you’re a PKG.
