We have a TOPCON TRC-50IX as our main capture cameras for
Color, RF, FA, & ICG. 

I know for a fact that turning the capture PC on and off
quite often degrades your hard drive and making it more likely to fail overtime;
earlier compared to a PC being on continuously, or a one that is turned off
then on occasionally. 

We used to keep the machines on during the working days, and
@times we shut them off just before the weekend.  But we were asked by ITA 
department to leave ‘em
one so network admins can update, patch, and backup our servers during the

Well; not so quite sure if the on/off procedure would have
any effect on the camera parts like light source and power supply unit etc… But
I know from experience working on different electrical machines that is not a
good practice.

So; leaving them on in my opinion is a good practice, and
time saver, as said if you need to get some quick study shots then the machine
is ready, and you don’t have to wait for it to initialize.

Cousin’s, One of the photographers has begun turning off the 50ex after every 
study to avoid the sound of the camera in their office. I don’t think it really 
matters if you leave the camera on all day or turn it off and on multi times. 
Perhaps someone has information which would enlighten an old dog photographer 
like me.   Thank You, Tom Steele, CRA
