Using the CameraScope


The Leica MC120 HD Microscope Camera is a standalone microscope camera system for inspection and assembly of circuits and small mechanisms as well as any other microscopic application. The camera outputs full HD video to a dedicated LCD monitor, allowing groups of persons to view the subject at the same time - something especially important for soldering instruction. The camera can also record full-color still images and movie clip recordings directly to the integrated SD card, without the need for a computer.

The microscope used in this setup is a Leica S6D stereo inspection microscope, with high-precision optics offering up to 40X magnification with a 38 degree viewing angle and a 110mm working distance.
