Keep your eyes out for the new Exo Labs Focus microscope camera designed exclusively for iPads in a classroom setting. Microscope.com will launch it exclusively on the internet, shortly and it is a beauty!
It is the only microscope camera that includes licensed Apple technology, which accounts for its seamless operation on the iPad. Teachers – and their students – will love it! The user interface is wonderful – clean, simple and engaging – the latter of which we think is most important of all. Kids will be drawn in to to use it and the highly intuitive menu will lead them not only to image capture, but to more advanced measuring and annotations in a heartbeat. Did I mention that it is truly plug-and-play? So many cheap microscope cameras claim to be plug-and -play, but the Focus really lives up to that claim. Instant live imaging!
For shared class work, it is easy to project on to a flat screen or you can also plug it into a projector. A couple of included adapters also turn it into its own camera irrespective of the microscope.
In short, we are delighted to be the exclusive representative of the Focus among microscope internet retailers and we will shortly be taking pre-orders……so stay Focused :)
Look out for our new touch screen, OptixCam EZVU-2 tablet microscope camera. It will be ready for shipping in May 2013 and is an exciting addition to the OptixCam range of microscope cameras.It will work on any compound or stereo microscope with an appropriate adapter.
The EZVU-2 is a 2 megapixel digital microscope camera with integrated 8″ LCD tablet. Complete with touch screen and vibrant color resolution (1024 x 768 pixels), it has a hefty 5GB of internal storage and flexible output direct to the LCD screen, via HDMI cable to TV( or monitor), via the mini or standard USB ports to your computer or you can store images on the 2GB included microSD card.
In other words, while it operates on the Android OS, it is ‘computer agnostic’ in the sense that you can transfer images to either PC or Mac computers. The Android OS gives it both a touch screen and the ability to use a computer mouse. We recommend the latter when executing sensitive measurements in order to reduce any vibration caused by screen touch.
A Launch Alert will follow when we have a specific shipping date. In the meantime, please share this news with your colleagues.

We are now launching the updated version of the OCS View software for our OptixCam USB digital microscope cameras and it is looking good!We have been selling OptixCam cameras for almost exactly one year, now, with strong feedback. Happily, these cameras perform significantly better than the Scopephoto software or Oplenic cameras which account for the majority of cheap microscope cameras on the market – and which we stopped selling last year.
