With a 300,000 pixel sensor the camera on here would stand to really rock. 2GB memory is included and it appears to have some decent battery life too. This sure look to be handy for a quick look under the microscope and also may have some use with looking at moles or growths. You could also check out the currency being used by patients to pay too (grin). BD
May 21, 2009 The world unseen, or barely seen, by the naked eye is full of mystery and surprise. For many professions, however, it's also part of the job. People employed to inspect printed circuit boards or the quality of fabrics, verify fingerprints or investigate counterfeit currency and forensics, research plants or appraise gems – the list goes on – all need to look at their worlds in microscopic detail. Extech Instruments' hand-held digital microscope with camera has just the portability and functionality that makes getting close to their job a whole lot easier.
Extech Instruments' MC108 mini-microscope has the advantage of a 1.8-inch TFT color LCD screen to view images, without needing to be plugged into a PC. A 300,000 pixel CMOS photosensor captures images, which are brightened by adjustable LED illumination.
