A 2.7-mm Karl Storz-Hopkins telescope was adapted to a single-lens reflex camera and photographs of the tympanic membrane obtained with electronic flash illumination. This system provides a view beyond the narrow isthmus of the external auditory canal and end-point lighting. Resultant photographs demonstrate the entire tympanic membrane, including the anterior sulcus; the depth of field is infinite and the image size is large. (Arch Otolaryngol 106:230-231, 1980)
