  • Great instrument for a very reasonable price

    posted by chffelix

    This microscope is a very easy to use tool. Just plug it in USB and you're ready for viewing. It has very handy light and focus adjustments, making it really quick to view anything.The fact it is handheld and displays the image on a computer screen makes is a big plus over traditional optical microscopes, where you have to stay curved over the target sample.The unit comes with a plastic ruler for calibrating the size of the viewed objects and the software for windows which comes with it allows you to measure the ruler and set a scale for pixes x mm, so you are able to measure the real size of the viewed objects at a given focus.It is TOTALLY LINUX COMPATIBLE (this is a BIG plus for me!). To use it under Linux just use the UVC webcam driver.
    Great for anything from hobby to professional observations of small stuff.
    Great tool for a very good price!
  • It works out-of-box, ubuntu + cheese and go!

    Perfect piece for the price! Another friendly thing is that it is recognized as webcam and the app Cheese is showing the stream right off, with no settings or drivers required.
    can't figure out how to use the ZOOM button. Pressed it but nothing happens. Will have to try under Windows I guess.
    I recommend it! Perfect helper for micro soldering for newbies like me ;)

    I bought, I got faster, it actually works as a microscope,
    we had fun with it is pretty cool.
    The only problem I see is that the resolution is low, it was HD I would buy again.
    Really just need to be HD and be cheaper. because it is a good product and well done, arrived intact and this is very good, and receiving the product was so fast compared to other products that I bought on the internet, even purchases made ??here in DX, DX seems that this even better
  • Works, cheap, fun

    It's cheap and it works straight out of the box. The free-standing form makes it possible to peer into places you couldn't get a traditional bench-top microscope. The built-in LED illumination is very convenient.
    I compared the magnification and resolution I get using this microscope against what is possible using the macro zoom of my Panasonic Lumix TS2 camera. The macro zoom of the TS2 provides almost the same magnification, at much better resolution and color. Of course, it costs about 10x as much as this USB microscope. And you can't stick it in your mouth to get pictures of your fillings like you can with the microscope.
    Fun toy that might come in handy some time. You might as well get one.
  • Cool gadget for the geek

    Easy to use, just plug and click the red button to start.Amazing pictures, I've calculated the minimum size which you can see and it's about 1,20 micrometers. You can take pictures easily and record video. The LEDs help very much at the moment of taking pictures. I use it for viewing details at electronics circuit boards which it's hard to do when you solder SMD.
    The price it's right for what you get, it's not a cellular microscope which you will see nanometers but you still get to see pretty cool stuff at the micrometer scale (you can see stains on hair for example), and it's pretty cool to have it as a picture on your pc. Also is very portable.
    Cool gift for a science loving kid, also for the passionate engineer which loves soldering new electronic boards and see how common things get weird at micrometer scale.
