    Features not Correct

    posted by danigluz on 06/21/2011 Certified Owner

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:
    Not very expensive compared to other options. Build quality is pretty good and stand is awesome (even better than the camera itself). Still images at native resolution are fairly decent.
    Cons:
    First of all, native resolution is not 2 Mpx, it is just 640x480. Plus, video capture is not at 30 fps. Therefore, if you move ...

    Pros:
    Ease of use. Target lighting is very good. Optics are OK. Works great. Sturdy enough to bear reasonably light shocks or bumps withuout damage.
    Cons:
    Better to shoot pics from PC instead of trigger, so to avoid any movement while pressing it.

    Works a treat

    posted by ShootistUK on 12/12/2010 Certified Owner

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:
    Does what it says on the box, place above an item, twiddle the focusing ring and then hey presto a magnified image appears on the p.c. screen which in turn can be stored as a snapshot or an avi film. The varaible illumination facility allows you to adjust l...
    Cons:
    The user manual talks about settings in the software which do not appear in the software that I was shipped and neither does th...

    great product loads of fun

    posted by bargainator on 12/02/2010 Certified Owner

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:less than 1 day

    Pros:
    I love it, it is much more powerful than I expected. The inbuilt lights work well and it has a dimmer that allows adjustment of the light which is helpful. The arm is sturdy and the base is heavily weighted for stability. It can be used without the base and...
    Cons:
    The only con I could possibly conceive is that it has a small un noticeable silly plastic gem on the back, it doesn't affect op...
