The zoom dial. The zoom marks start at roughly (-)200x. An accurate magnification is next to impossible. The dial is very touchy. So much so that if you remove your finger from it, like maybe to take a picture, the weight of the lens causes itself to drop closer to the object making the picture blurry. All in all you have about 1/2 a second to take a picture without holding the dial steady.
Speaking of steadiness: it comes with a nice looking stand to hold everything in place. Once again, disappointed. The grip on the microscope becomes loose causing it to fall on the object with the slightest touch of the dial. It will hold it in place if no adjustments need to be made.
Another "luxury" feature is the easy snap photo button on the microscope. The purpose is to take quick pictures without moving hands. Very novel idea. My issue is that it does not just take one picture. After 4-6 presses of the button I had 458 pictures. That adds up at just under 1mg each.
The included software has no options to manage multiple picture selections. Organizing hundreds of pictures like that is not fun. I hope whoever uses this understands directories and common storage locations since it store them in "..appdata/local" and not "..program files."
I was hoping the instruction manual had some advice for me. Shot down again.Read more ›
It's not a lab-quality piece of equipment, it's a <$100 toy. I use it for inspecting razor blades that I've honed and it does a decent job.
Some of the other reviews on the zoom and focus are a bit misleading. It does change zoom, and it does focus, but these are both done using the focusing ring. The proximity of the object being viewed is what determined the zoom level. It will only go to full zoom when the object is held right against the clear plastic shroud. As an object is moved away, the ring must be moved to a lower magnification to maintain focus.
I have two complaints.
1 - Without a way to activate the focusing ring remotely from the software, it is very difficult to hold the item steady so the object is still in focus when the ring is released.
2 - You can't place an object on the table directly in front of the stand and then move the nose down to touch it... the unit falls forward.
The focal range is from the camera itself (and even slightly inside the housing) to about 8 inches away. Don't expect it to function as a general purpose webcam without additional optics (a simple concave lens would probably suffice, think of it as nearsighted and correct accordingly). For purposes like inspecting papers (including paper currency, stamps, watermarks, etc.), coins, jewelry, and other such fine but still macroscopic items it could be incredibly useful, but a microscope it ISN'T. At best, it will take an object about half an inch across and fill the sensor with it -- about equivalent to 3200 dpi. If it was advertised as a close-focus "macro" webcam, I'd give it 4 stars rather than 3. The misleading advertising costs it the extra star.

The focusing wheel works well, but takes practice. Small turns can lead to big changes. Plus, there is a delay after any adjustment. I took pictures on my Mac. "Get information" says the pix are 1600 X 1200. They look good on my screen. At any rate, one can snap a pix and take a look at small objects in the field, send the pix back to the lab for comment. I did not try the movie aspect of the camera. Not interested in that function.
Sure, one might like to have an 8mb usb microscope camera in the field, but that might be over kill. One can always take the samples back to the lab and have higher rez images processed. However, having images of tiny objects "live" in the field does have its advantages.
I received no instructions with my scope. However, Mac people usually can figure out how stuff works. The software disk has an image of the microscope, again no instructions. That image can be dragged to the applications folder. There is NO help under the help window. If you are not very familiar with figuring stuff out on your computer, do not buy the product. Nevertheless, it really is dirt simple. If there were instructions, I would give a 5 star rating. For Mac people, one can drag the picture into iPhoto and improve on it a bit, but one may not need to do that at all.
Now, will the camera last? If not, I will post on that.
