Aven Upgrades Digital Mighty Scope
Handheld scope with illumination.
Ann Arbor, MI — New from Aven, Inc. is its 5.0MP upgrade of its Digital Mighty Scope handheld microscope, a sophisticated inspection instrument for engineers, scientists, doctors, quality inspectors, lab techs, educators and other professionals.

The new model is the most powerful since the company introduced Mighty Scope in 2008 to combine adjustable magnification and image capture in a compact instrument with a USB interface. The advanced camera delivers higher-resolution images for more precise parts inspection, assembly quality assurance, research analysis, forensic comparisons and dermatology exams.

Magnification adjusts from 10x to 200x. A brightness wheel allows fingertip control of six white LEDs to suit varied indoor and outdoor environments. The camera has a 1/4-in. (6.35mm) color CMOS sensor.

Windows-compatible software supports capture of still images, interval shots or video. It includes a measurement tool, image-freeze capability and a compare mode for side-by-side examination of two live images or a live view with a stored one. Video can be recorded at 15 to 30 frames per second, based on resolution. A Microtouch shutter button means there's no need to tap a computer key, whether the palm-size scope is handheld or mounted on an adjustable metal stand.

Active pixel technology delivers sharp images and accurate color. Automatic white balance and gain control assure optimal image clarity. Ergonomic design allows comfortable use with either hand. Applications include electronic assembly, forensic document or currency inspection, crime lab work, precision repairs, warranty claims documentation and quality inspection by printers or textile manufacturers. The 5.0MP scope also is handy for jewelers, watchmakers, art curators and appraisers of small valuables. Hobbyists can examine stamps, coins, fossils, stones and other nature specimens, and also compile magnified images.
