General Notes On Device

Connected by Composite video signal to the capture card. Two cables out the back, one out the front. Looks clumsy, feels ok in the hand. Camera box swivels to give potentially variable image orientation. Auto focus. Fiber optic cable not removable. Camera  dock on light box awkward. Loud fan. Rheostat controlled light intensity. Light is powered on and controlled separately from the camera unit. Size of the light box appropriate. Small controls on the back of the camera. Auto WB and manual WB, not initially clear but easy use when figured out. Screw used to secure fiber optic cable.  Neither comfortable or uncomfortable in the hand, box swivels, lightweight. Physical switches are hardware based and robust.
