Product Description

The Aven 26700-200-PLR Mighty Scope with polarizer is a hand-held, digital microscope that has a 2.0 USB interface, six white LED lights, a Microtouch shutter trigger, optical magnification ability of 10X to 200X, and comes with image and video capture software. This digital microscope enhances the resolution of an object or image, and connects to a computer for image display. It is designed for use with shiny surfaces, such as solder joints and reflective metal parts, and is commonly used for quality control (QC) inspection, medical and scientific research, geology, mineralogy, and chemistry.

This mobile microscope houses a polarizer to inspect reflective surfaces, and produce clear images. Its adjustable magnification of 10X to 200X comes in an all-in-one, compact lens. A 1/4” complementary metal-oxide semiconductor (CMOS) color image sensor manages noise reduction and image quality, and delivers high-resolution, 1280 x 1024 National Television System Committee (NTSC)-standard pixel images. The frame rate is 30 frames per second (FPS), and 15 FPS at 1.3 mega-pixels. The Mighty Scope uses six white LED lights with adjustable brightness to control illumination. Microscope lighting can be turned on and off. The microscope has automatic white balance to control brightness, and automatic gain control to amplify the electrical output and show a clearer image. A Microtouch shutter trigger allows for convenient image capture when in hand-held mode, or mounted on a stand. Included software captures images and has measurement and image comparison functions. The microscope comes with an adjustable metal stand that includes height and angle adjustment.

H is height, the vertical distance from the lowest to highest point; W is width, the horizontal distance from left to right; D is depth, the horizontal distance from front to back.

Microscopes are instruments used to enhance the resolution of an object or image. Types include compound, stereo, or digital. Compound microscopes use a compound optical system with an objective lens and an eyepiece. Stereo microscopes show object depth in a three-dimensional image. Digital microscopes are used to display an image on a monitor, rather than looking through a lens. Microscopes can have monocular (one), binocular (two), or trinocular (three) eyepieces, with varying magnification abilities. Magnification ability refers to the size of an image. Resolution, also known as resolvant power, refers to the clarity of the image. The interaction between field of view (FOV), numerical aperture (NA), and working distance (WD) determines resolution. Microscopes can control magnification through a fixed focus, or through a range of adjustments. They can also utilize LED, fluorescent, and mirror light sources to help control viewing capabilities. Microscopes are widely used in education, lab research, biology, metallurgy, engineering, chemistry, manufacturing, and in the medical, forensic science, and veterinary industries.

Aven manufactures optical inspection tools, precision tools, and bench accessories for industrial, scientific, and research applications. The company was founded in 1983 and is headquartered in Ann Arbor, MI.

Since no one had written a review of the Aven 1.3 Meg Mighty Scope, I researched the heck out of Aven on the Web, and decided to be the first one to try it. I bought it for sharpening knives, as the video shows, it is absolutely perfect for that task. The first side of my Buck knife shown clearly needs more sharpening, as the newly sharpened part hasn't reached the edge yet. Then the video flips to the other side of the blade, and shows that side is ready. Then back to the side I'm currently sharpening, showing it needs a tad more work before going to a finer diamond stone.

The software worked perfectly on the first try. It takes crystal clear pictures and videos with ease. The stand is HEAVY, and rock solid. My only complaint is that the price just went down thirty bucks since I ordered mine. I am 100%, absolutely TOTALLY satisfied with my Mighty Scope. It IS the real deal!

I found this Aven scope to be of good build quality and fairly easy to use. The provided software is a bit quirky and dated, but nevertheless, after consulting the instructions, I was able to do decent measurements and snap some pictures. The provided stand is extremely helpful, though I wish the connection to the scope body was a bit more rigid.

This unit is no better than the cheap generic equivalents. The software is buggy, the unit is randomly not detected by the software, and the software is poorly written. It seems that Aven has taken one of these cheap generic models and put their name on the case and software. I will be sending this back and keeping my cheap one, there is no performance difference between the two. For $189 I can get a real microscope + small webcam, install the webcam on the microscope and get infinitely better results. Obviously I did not expect "real microscope" functionality from this thing, but I at almost 4 times the cost of a generic, I expected at least 4 times better performance and quality - which I absolutely did not get.
