Note the reflection in the image of my eye, if you zoom in and enhance you may be able to read what is on my screen which will then possibly lead to the solving of a murder.

    Thanks for sharing – you’ve got some really awesome pics in this post and the other one. I keep considering getting a USB microscope, but don’t really have the patience to use it for very long – but it’s great to see your results! Regarding the picture of an eye, do you think you could get it to focus on the iris instead of the screen/lights? (Perhaps try a desk lamp at an angle for illumination instead of the built in lights?)

    Benjie,

    I had another go with the microscope and got some better images; enjoy.

    thanks for your image sample, i am trying to get something like this from my local dealer but i dont know how much magnifying that i need, can i ask some help to take a picture of a ruler at max zoom, preferably on mm scale. you have one on your main review blog with screwdriver picture on main cheese windows, but i don’t know the zoom scale on that picture.

  4. […] requested (by uplink) here are some images and calculations of the microscopes maximum […]

    @uplink Done! see this post. I also did the calculations for the actual zoom, hopefully that helps.

    thanks for this fast response. i believe that is much more than what i need.
