Iv looked it up..
Its a neat device, but there is Very simple info on it.
And 1 important 1..Unless you ant to goto Oil magnification you cant get to 1000x with full optical..and it aint cheap.
But as a neat device its great..
I would like..
Focal depth..Range it can focus to magnify.
DPI or Megapixel..
It does work well, but its abit over the top on its advert.
Re: Iv looked it up..
I wish someone had told me years ago you couldn’t use 1000X without an oil setup. Would have saved me hours of looking down my nice Russian made microscope at the bugs in dirty water and wings of butterflies, all sorts …
1000X magnification is better with the right gear but just use a bright light and it works OK.
Does it work with Linux? That is, are there drivers that will work with linux, or are they proprietary?
Re: Does it work with Linux?
I can’t see mention of any drivers at all — compatibility with mobiles seems to be done with a cable, nothing more.
Maybe this uses some standard image-capture facility of the USB stack. Which means it might work on Linux.
Great Tech.. Never seen this type of microscope camera with 1000x zoom.
