The Pro-600 and Pro-600 Special were superseded by decent CineVoice conversions, as they weighed less and often had other features added by whoever modified them. 

We always saw the Pro-600 as a camera to avoid, something usually bought by companies and government agencies on a bid. 

My high school had one. I never even tried to borrow it.  Yeah, snobby even back then.

The PRO-600 was introduced in 1955. It was eventually superseded by other models and modifications, but probably hung on the longest in service to smaller TV stations for local news and commercial production.

It was used by some TV stations into the mid to late 1970’s unless they could afford CP-16s. Some networks used it to make kinescopes of video and live tv for distribution to PAL stations and for network libraries. Some Canadian artists used it to make kinescopes of early video art to distribute to theatres in the 1980s. I taught the use Auricons and CPs in a class of mine in mixed media in 1985 at Ryerson Polytechnic. There are still some around.
