The 'greenish' video is actually an old 80's camera - used to belong to a DVinfo'er. :) Search on this board for sensual seduction, there's a thread about it somewhere :)

Here's the link to my thread about the camera:

It is nearly impossible to duplicate the look of old tube cameras with a modern camera; the way they render color and detail and their smeary effect with highlights is a pretty complicated cocktail. Besides, it's more fun to dig up old cameras of the era, they can be had for a song on eBay!

They also used star filters on that video; a 4-point is a good place to start (makes an x or a plus sign appearance around lights). And heavy period diffusion like a Harrison and Harrison double fog filter will add to the 70's look.
