Thank you for reading this Techdirt post. With so many things competing for everyone’s attention these days, we really appreciate you giving us your time. We work hard every day to put quality content out there for our community.

Techdirt is one of the few remaining truly independent media outlets. We do not have a giant corporation behind us, and we rely heavily on our community to support us, in an age when advertisers are increasingly uninterested in sponsoring small, independent sites — especially a site like ours that is unwilling to pull punches in its reporting and analysis.

While other websites have resorted to paywalls, registration requirements, and increasingly annoying/intrusive advertising, we have always kept Techdirt open and available to anyone. But in order to continue doing so, we need your support. We offer a variety of ways for our readers to support us, from direct donations to special subscriptions and cool merchandise — and every little bit helps. Thank you.

    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.
