  • very good performance for its price

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

    Pros:

    Small and very portable, works with Mac OSX computers (10.6 and 10.7 tested), no need for drivers on those systems, just use photo boot for video, or something fancier if you have. Nice and even illumination with 2-levels switch, can be turned off directly, no need for the (provided) software or driver.

    Cons:

    It does not had a true zoom, to be able to use less than 200X you have to increase distance to object, in fact, it can provide a 1x (that is, NO magnification at all) at 1 m and can be used as a webcam!
    Photo button does nothing (but I´m not using provided program/driver so its not a real con.
    Image is foggy when at low magnification and with lights on, turn them off and using another external light source resolves the problem

    OtherThoughts:

    Very good and versatile, small objects that are near lens can be even more amplified! great to experiments, and great picture quality (for its price)

    Bottomline:

    Excellent and cheap!
