Re: Olympus CH-2

Was told here, but the guy that preconditions and sells Microscopes. These have far better optics than the Amscope and Chinese microscopes. A warning with LED lighting, unless it is in the colour range of 2700, LED is very bad for your eyes. There has been some research, that suggests the blue light...

Re: Digital microscopes. This site seems to look down on them

FB_IMG_1556563833563.jpg Thanks guys, had been looking and with exchange rates and import taxes to expensive for what it is, and to get it here is certianly not worth the cost. Will stick to my Olympus, which has better optics than Amscope and many of the Chinese brands. I may pull out the camera a...

Re: Digital microscopes. This site seems to look down on them

https://youtu.be/Nkcd9xg2b6Q The only issue is video res wont be high, but has a 5 megapixel still camera, so taking stills on sd card and viewing through your TV, or putting ad card in PC would give a true image test. The screen and video quailty alone and LCD would limit how clear things are also ...

Re: Digital microscopes. This site seems to look down on them

It has a simple condensor N.A. 065 and rotating disk with different size holes. The images are better than many maybe claiming here, and don't see a hugh differince between my Olympus and this, sure not quite as good, but still very usable. Mounting is not a flimsy as people here cliam, its soild an...

Re: Digital microscopes. This site seems to look down on them

Apartly the Celestron I mentioned has a solid base and stand, no more plastic than many sold by Amscope and others today and has changeable objectives. I would class this as beyond a toy, but in the hobbyists class. As far as Amscope goes, not to find of them either as my Olympus CH-2 has better qua...

Re: Digital microscopes. This site seems to look down on them

https://youtu.be/UMpx2vHjcuQ What's wrong with this, its through one of these microscopes? People tend to judge and never used one. People tend to get so serious that unless all the boxes are ticked then judge them as junk. Has anyone ever tried one? Or just using your own judgements as your standar...

Re: Digital microscopes. This site seems to look down on them

You failed to mention, yes may not be the best objectives, but being standard objective sizes, you could easily replace them with even better objectives, so increase and have better resolution. Like I said, have an Olympus CH-2 and could and do have a microscope camera. The reason I dont use it, is:...

New from New Zealand, with Olympus CH-2

Got an Olympus CH-2, it's a wonderful microscope, and solid. Have been looking around the forums for awhile. My main interest is Astronomy, and at odd times love to view things through my microscope, but not as seriously into it like many maybe on here. But still great to occasionally get my microsc...

Celestron digtial microscopes

Microscopes with screens built in any good?

Been looking at the Celestron dearer models, with built in 4.3 inch led screen.
