Another USB microscope shot - actually, it is simply a digital camera with variable focus.

A fascinating image, Tom.
Tom Wilson: I'm hoping to use it on more interesting subjects, once the weather improves!
You're just having fun now... smile
Tom Wilson: Always, Elizabeth - if it ain't fun, don't do it!

I’m going to get one, it’s a must have item Tom.
Tom Wilson: They're very cheap and there are a number of different models - you can use them with your mobile phone, too (Android only), if the phone has something called an OTG function (OTG means On The Go apparently).
Does it attach to your camera or is it standalone?
Tom Wilson: It attaches to the computer by usb connector - or to a supported mobile phone. On the Mac, I can just use PhotoBooth to view the image, on a Windows machine you need another program.
I suspect we are going to see several people buying one and posting pics on SC. We could have Microscope Mondaygrin
Tom Wilson: That would be a good idea!
bien réalisé!! amitiés
Tom Wilson: Merci, Jean Pierre.
