Jeffrey hooks up with Joseph Kane to get the latest developments at BigC, the distributor of the Dino-Lite digital microscope camera. It connects to a PC or laptop via USB and this year’s models are evolutionary with improved optics.
The camera can focus from infinity right down to almost no distance at all and as the distance is reduced, the magnification increases. The video gives a good demonstration of this, going from a shot down a hallway to magnified view of a watch mechanism at around 215x magnification. Impressive.
There are loads of different models aimed at different tasks and activities and these are all on the website.
The model on show is $499 but other ‘scopes start from around $200.
