SUMMARY

A neat video microscope with a decent-size screen and an effective flexible lighting system.

Good working distance (enough space to work with both hands on the lower magnifications). 8X to 200X magnification. Many extra features when you insert a Micro-SD card (not included).

TECHNICAL

Model: AD206

Screen size: 7 inch

Sensor: 2 megapixels HD

Magnification: up to 200X

Working distance: 2cm (on high magnification) to 17cm (on low magnification)

Lighting: diffuse lighting (2-LED) around the objective lens, two LED spot lights (8-LED) on ‘swan necks’ either side of the stage

Power: 5V DC (mains power supply included)

If you use a micro-SD card (not supplied) you get lots of extra features, you can save stills images (.jpg format, 12M); you can take video (.avi format, max frame rate 30f/s).

Overall size / weight in packaging 32 X 22 X 10cm, 1.5Kg.

DETAIL

When choosing a video microscope you must compromise between a large professional model (we had a model that was three times larger than this one and cost £600.00); there are also ‘toy’ models with tiny monitors, no decent lighting and they produce fuzzy images. 

I think this one strikes just the right balance. It has a decent-size screen, quite reasonable optical quality and (most importantly) a good lighting system – lighting is critical with any microscope, the best quality lenses are useless without the correct lighting.

Five of the pictures show a twenty pound note on low magnification – if you have one in your pocket, look at the building (it’s the Bank of England) to see the size not-magnified; the coin is a gold Sovereign with a fine pair of tweezers.
