Nice for the price!
Bought this back in July2013. Specifically, wanted to monitor my ear condition. Took me a while to realize that I would have to tweak some of the device parameters via the software to be able to view the eardrum (brightness,contrast,sharpness,etc.). Now, I am also having fun with it taking magnified photos of so many things I've never seen in close up before! BTW, I've been able to discover tooth problems that my dentist had not noticed...so I was able to direct him into some specific repair work. Finding that placing some adhesive glazier's tape on the tripod feet allow the device to stick to a surface and to be fairly stable while adjusting focus or while adjusting specimen. Going to make some photo prints for framing, next.
Only two problems, so far. First is easy:I put a marker on the barrel to indicate top or north orientation. Makes it much easier to pan or to discern direction in the field of view.
Second: Have had to reboot PC a couple of times as there occurred a lock up upon loading.

I bought DrMeter's microscope but didn't work on my mac.
Therefore, I return the item and bought suspereye's microscope which is absolutely the same product with this.
I was worried.
But! this time, it worked on my mac.
Mac recognized the usb microscope right after I plugged in.
I used photo booth to use the microscope.
You can have a bunch of attachments depends on how you want to use.
I like one I can see inside ear.
Very small like a pen, you can adjust the light as well.
But the software was not recognized by mac.
Actually it is fine because you can used photo booth.

Works for me...
Interesting camera but more interesting is the software that comes with it. Copy *.exe off mini CD-ROM to local dir, no admin install privileges required. It appears from running the software that image enhancement is obtained, higher resolution is obtained (1600x1200) by integrating multiple images into the displayed video stream. The camera is probably 640x480 (maybe lower?) but by having the software integrate multiple (10's of) frames you get the higher resolution. SW actually does this very well. Quick movements are not seen in real time but delayed due to the SW integrating these into the video stream so you see a blurred delayed reaction in video stream with any sudden movements in subject. Overall it is what I needed, high resolution (1600x 1200) laptop display, with a stable subject image, shooting thru the eyepiece of a microscope. Won't work for home security due to the low absolute resolution of base camera (can select other resolutions from menu). For the price - its exactly what I needed. Good job SuperEyes!

Much better than cheap generic boroscopes
There are two features that set this apart from other cheap boroscopes: It does not get hot and it has a focus ring, allowing it to behave as a microscope, a mechanical boroscope or -to certain point- as an endoscope.

USB Digital Microscope.
Uses a standard USB webcam interface so you can pretty much just plug it in and play, even with Linux!
Makes a great macro video/photo tool for those ultra closeups of a ladybug or other such things.
If you back the focus out to infinity it makes a good web cam as well.
Just what I needed!

Not very useful for viewing teeth, ear canal.
Very shaky image when viewing teeth, ear canal, or skin surface. Not very useful for this. Magnification is very good. The brightness is very good. However I could not see the eardrum when viewing inside the ear canal (image too shaky, image not focusing far enough). I guess I need a professional otoscope to see inside my ear canal. Probably just good for viewing small objects such as coins, insects and as such.

great camera and microscope
This thing is a great close up camera.
It has an incredible focus range.
Easy to use without any effort to set it up on my computer.
Like the assortment of attachments.

Using it for school projects. Amazing clarity picture. Software was a little tricky. Downloaded newest software and everything works great.

Really cheap accessories. Mirror would not stay on.

I Can See!
This is awesome. I used it to find a cavity my dentist couldn't find. It the cheapest microscope I could find and well worth it. Great for kids science experiments!
