Note: Focus Wheel can be used on ALL devices. But SNAP and ZOOM button can only be recognize on Windows system as the software was written by our company, and android APP (mac system doesn’t need software) is common in the market so it can’t recognize the SNAP and ZOOM command.

I wasn't expecting much since it was just going to be cheap microscope for my daughter. We first started viewing dead bugs we found around the house and then we were able to see a live baby aphid on a plant stamen. The stem was already very small, so when we saw something even smaller wiggling around, we were very impressed with the quality.
This is an inexpensive microscope. The real ones, used in medicine, cost upwards of $300, so...TIPS:1. The stand is meant to hold the scope while not in use.2. The zoom button has five presets. Press the button once to cycle through them. There is no graduation for zoom.3. The software needs to be set up properly. (size of photo, length of video, where to store shots on your computer, etc.) in settings.4. Double-click the 'Snap' button to take a picture.5. Focus using the thumb-wheel.6. Replace the cap to keep dust out when not in use.This unit is awesome for the price! The pictures are of a 1878 Silver Dollar, hand held.
I paid full price for this and never all opinions are my own. That being said I absolutely love this! I got it for a few different purposes to use with my android phone and windows 10 laptop. I have to mention customer service was great as I had some problems with my first one. They quickly sent me a replacement along with better instructions to see if that was the problem. However my first scope didn't work with my phone or laptop. The replacement they sent me came with a carrying case which the original did not, that was a great addition. The replacement one immediately worked with my phone(I already had the apps downloaded from trying the first one). And it also worked with windows 10. I've been looking at all sorts of random things with it just because it's so interesting to see stuff so up close. All the functions are very easy to use and I've found it very easy to focus in on things. For the price you definitely can't beat it.The photo is of my carpet in my mudroom where everyone wipes their shoes off. It obviously needs some major cleaning haha. But just an example of how close up you can get. I never knew my carpets looked like spheghetti, and you can see all the tiny tiny tiny rocks that look quite big. Pretty nasty actually.The stand is a bit cheap but I haven't actually needed to use it yet. My hands are steady enough and if you set the scope directly on what you'd like to magnify there's no need for the stand. There's space so you can place the tip of it on a surface without it touching the inside, if that makes sense. Very happy I got this and it should work great to check when my plants are ready which was my main purpose for getting it.
Really incredible little microscope for how much it is! I was between this digital microscope and a pocket microscope. My husband surprised my daughter and I and went ahead and ordered this one. I’m so glad! I love that we can all see what is under the microscope at one time. It’s simple to use. Just open the program it works with with your computer and plug it in!! Works wonderfully! We’re all out collecting things to bring back and take a closer look at. Here are some of the images we got.. a moth, spider, eyeball, and hair!
Works great between 40x-~750x, after that the extending lens casts a spot shadow on the subject it is trying to observe. The base is also somewhat unstable. A little tip to those who do get one: The clear plastic ring is removable, it just pulls right off, allowing the lens to get close enough to the target without touching or getting in the way of tools. I'm using Debian 9 XFCE (linux) with Guvcview (usb camera software), I have not tested the provided software, although I heard it is ok. The framerate is ~22fps at 40x, and as you approach the max zoom, the fps drops to ~8fps.EDIT bump from 3 to 4 stars:Seller was very responsive and sent me an improved stand, which increases the usability of the microscope by tenfold as far as stability and focus. Still encountering the lens shadow issue though at high zoom, but usable within the range I use it at.
All the people giving this excellent little device lowered ratings for anything other than function, as in whether or not it works, are ignoring the price and cost comparison. I'm adapting the holder from their stand to one of my own, because it is exactly what I expected for the money; the stand is too light, lacks adjustment flexibility, and does not provide any good viewing angles. Forget about their stand and spend the money to upgrade, or use an old junky microscope, easily found for under a buck at garage sales this time of year, remove the viewer and replace it with this camera and it's value then becomes apparent.Focusing and zoom are not properly marked, which may be simply a language misunderstanding. Clarity or focus are distance related, not due to any controls on this camera. Packaging was fine; it's not a returned and repackaged item which sometimes happens with low cost items. Shipping was fast.I am a little dubious about it magnifying to 1000x and am inclined to place it more around 60x to 200x, maybe as high as 250x, but no higher. However, try and find a more capable microscope that has cross-compatibility between every system for twenty bucks. It's not likely to happen.I'm very pleased with this purchase.
