Arthroscopic photography

Good documentation of shoulder arthroscopy still requires 35 mm photography, although computer technology may soon make this redundant and allow high quality hard copy to be made from videotapes. It is really essential to have a power winder, or two hands will have to be used on the camera body and contamina­tion of the arthroscope may occur as the surgeon's natural reaction is to steady the arthroscope itself for the next shot. High-speed film is needed, such as 1000 or 640 ASA tungsten film.
