The portable and compact 5MP FlipView LCD Digital Handheld Microscope from Celestron can be used as a handheld, tabletop, or mounted device and combines a 5MP 1/4"colour CMOS sensor with a 10-120x infrared-reducing optical system to provide high resolution images and videos with a magnification range from 10x to 120x. To offer additional illumination for your specimens, the microscope also features an illumination system of 8 white light LEDs with controllable brightness. Moreover, there is 6-position filter with red, blue, and green filters and 1mm, 3mm, and 6mm apertures. You can save still images with a maximum 5MP resolution, 12MP with interpolation, and VGA videos with 30 fps. Also available is a TBD video compression function.

The 3" colour TFT LCD screen is deployable and can be rotated 90 by 180° to provide most convenient viewing position. Deploying the LCD screen allows you to access a menu pad. The menu pad and control buttons offer control over the operating modes, functions, and connectivity to your PC. The microscope is compatible with both Windows and Mac operating systems and integrates a mini-USB port, an AV video output port, and a 32GB micro-SD memory slot. The microscope is powered by a 1050 mAh rechargeable lithium ion battery, which can be charged with the included power adapter. Also included with the microscope are an articulating stand, a carry case, a USB cable, mini-USB and AV video cables, and a CD with MicroCapture Pro, a calibration tool, and a cleaning cloth.
