General Notes On Device

Rigid scope button depressed, light source on with maximum light intensity, S-Video output. 2 cords, coupler seems awkward. Bayonet style c clamp is convenient to attach camera and optics together. Offers locking mechanism to hold barrel in place, however does not completely prevent movement, however it is adequate for normal use. Barrel solid. Light adapter connection to optics is a snap on connector, forcible connection can lead to perception of risked damage when pulled on an off. Good cable length. Focal tension/resistance on the focus ring is correct.   Larger diameter coupler in combination with 2 cord coupler affects balance while unit held in hand and could lead to difficulty in holding in smaller hands. Power box when plugged in also needs to be turned on to then power on box.  Separate power button for the light source and the camera. Buttons are soft switch with firm quality, good tactile response. Prompts to white balance on start up. Image enhance button must be pushed each time to use as VO. Retains settings on power on/off. No noise. No fan. Single cable out of the box. Can power on and off rapidly. Cannot put pediatric speculum on the cover, can't be used for pediatrics.
