General Notes On Device

Capture card, blue tip, WA speculum cover attached, focus noted as limited after 1 cm away, must be completely on far focus.  Gets hot in the hand. Focus difficult to control. Second opinion has designed a well thought out probe cover that fits over the existing probe design. Ability to do pneumatic insufflation with second opinion probe cover only.  Fan that is louder. Rotating dial for light intensity. Clean on/off button. 2 soft buttons on the light box with vague purpose. Cable has a threaded collar, fairly hard to insert and remove. Rheostat light intensity control. Mem/live button supports a freeze capability. Supports a foot switch capability. Reasonable size light box, with dated appearance. Fine grain control possible, however looseness of tension makes device.
