The microscope offers five magnification settings, 40X, 100X, 250X, 400X, and 1000X. The light sources use either an outlet (adapter included) or three AA batteries (included). For easy to test and get familiar with the microscope, a 10pc slide kit of five biological specimens and five blank is included. The digital camera captures still images and video, and allows you to view a live stream on your PC. The included software for Windows offers image-development and measurement tools, as well as advanced compositing features such as image-stitching and extended-depth-of-focus. Independent preview and capture resolutions allow you to view high-speed video while capturing high-definition images.
