METOCHECK MiniScope handheld digital microscope

(PresseBox) (Orbis, ) The METOCHECK MiniScope combines a digital movie camera, precision optics and LED lighting in a microscope that fits in the palm of your hand. 40 - 140X magnification lets you zoom in on the fine details of insects, textiles, electronics or anything else too small to see. Place the MiScope over the object, and comfortably view the image on your computer screen, instead of straining to look into a tiny eyepiece. Capture images or movies, easily add labels, make measurements and even draw right on the live video image.

The MiniScope connects to your computer’s USB port where it’s always ready to use. Grab a laptop and take the MiScope anywhere. Use it to show your products to a customer, inspect a valuable collectable right in the store, or take it into the backyard and get a closer look at the insects who share our world.
