    Elephant endoscopy?
    I do use a digital device in my photographic pursuits when necessary.
    When someone rags on me for using film, I use a middle digit, upraised.

    Would you want your lens back afterwards? In the large animal veterinary word, it's called "green arming" if they had to do it to a cow. The exam involves long gloves. Camera optional.

    I have seen one in use where two images were made at 180 degrees to each other and the resultant trannies scanned and loaded into a very early computer look-all-around programme - Long before the auto-pan-for-digicams-motorised-thing came along

    Now I think it is redundant and the front elephant is used for a garden bird bath
