Omax 3.2 mp camera vs Amscope 3.0 mp camera

#1 Post by p3aul » Mon Jan 18, 2016 12:11 pm

Which one is better, including the software? I have experience with an older Amscope 1.3mp it was OK, nothing to write home about, but then it was only 1.3 mp also.

Thanks,
Paul

I have had the AmScope MU300 for a few years. It's an ok microscope camera. The USB operation is a little slow for video, but the convenience is hard to beat. The software is pretty good once you get the hang of it. Most of my photos here on the forum were taken with it.
I don't have any experience with the Omax camera, sorry.
