The most distinguishable feature of this machine is its height. At only
8 cm it's one of the slimmest Betamax machines. In order to get
this height, the individual channel selection buttons have been sacrificed
in favour of up and down buttons. Another nice feature is
the transparent hole in the lid to allow viewing of the video cassette.
The SL-F30 also came in other colours such as the red version seen here.
Tape CounterThe tape counter on this unit can be read as a real time counter, see how.
