Regular price $138.99 $117.99

Key Features

  • 5MP USB digital camera captures photos & live videos on Windows XP/Vista/7/8/10, Mac OS X, and Linux computers
  • Includes calibration slide for establishing measurement baselines
  • User-friendly software for Windows offers editing/processing and advanced features including Stitching, EDF, Video Recording and Measurement functions
  • Linux and Mac software records video and still images, with controls for exposure and color
  • Fits 3 mounting sizes: 23mm, 30mm and 30.5mm (two mounting adapters included)

The MD500 is an ultra-compact 5MP USB digital microscope camera, ideally suited for use as an eyepiece camera. By itself, it will fit 23mm ocular or photo ports, but it can be adapted to fit 30mm or 30.5mm ports using the included sleeves. Using the USB interface for both connectivity and power, only a single cable is needed.

With software available for Windows, Mac, and Linux, this camera package is a multi-platform imaging solution. The included Windows software offers image-development and measurement tools, as well as advanced compositing features such as image-stitching and extended-depth-of-focus. With the ability to calibrate scales at multiple magnifications, the software can be used for multi-level inspection. Independent preview and capture resolutions allow you to view high-speed video while simultaneously capturing high-definition images. For Mac and Linux, there is a lite version of the software which can capture video and still images, and includes limited processing features. The included calibration slide allows you to take accurate measurements in the software by creating baseline measurements at multiple magnifications.
