- Resolution Class
Resolution ClassThis filter allows you to select a camera by the resolution (megapixels) of the camera. Unless you are doing high quality printing, additional resolution over 3 megapixels may be wasted since most computer monitors have maximum resolution of approximately 2 megapixels. Also, higher resolution typically involves slower refresh rates and, therefore, less effective live imaging.

- Camera Interface
Firewire is a brand name for IEEE Serial Business Bus or in plain language, a higher speed alternative to USB. It is more commonly used in professional applications.
RCA Composite Video is an analog output designed for computer monitors and TVs. Look for acronyms such as NTSC or AVi.
USB 2.0 Most microscope cameras output via USB 2.0 - the standard for output to computers, cell phones and other personal devices.
USB 3.0 is a new 'Superspeed' USB connection, currently found on a limited range of products, whether microscopy or other.
VGA is also an analog signal for output to computer monitors or to HDTV rather than computers.

- Head Type
Monocular microscopes have a single eyepiece. Always keep both eyes open when using a monocular microscope.
Binocular heads have two eyepieces.
Trinocular heads have two eyepieces plus an additional port to which a camera can be attached for still and live imaging.
Digital Only are digital microscopes with no eyepieces to view the specimen with the naked eye.

- Magnification Type
Fixed: Entry-Level, single, low power objective designed for Elementary School level.
Dual Power: Two fixed, low power objectives, typically used when zoom magnification is not required or budget is a constraint. Ideal for young microscopists and hobbyists.
Zoom: Allows a convenient seamless zoom throughout a magnification range, much like an SLR camera. More sophisticated design and are, therefore, more expensive than dual power microscopes.
- Illumination Type
Halogen or LED illumination is standard on most good quality microscopes. Only advanced users will see the difference so the choice is a personal one.
Halogen provides a bright white that is suitable for most applications. Since it is a hot light, it is not recommended where heat is an issue, such as live specimens.
LED Illumination is an alternative to halogen with more of a bluish white light. It often includes rechargeable batteries for greater portability.
Tungsten is typically used on microscopes where price is the primary purchasing criteria.

- Dino-Lite Stands
For convenience, we have grouped Dino-Lite microscope stands into three categories based on our experience of customer applications.
General Purpose Stands: Popular among Hobbyists, Schools and Consumers. Some industrial applications.
Industrial Stands: Typically purchased by industrial and professional customers, these stands are bigger and stronger than those in General Purpose.
Specialty Stands: These stands include forensic applications, applications that require the stands to slide or roll and other more specialist requirements.

- Sensor Type
CMOS (complementary metal oxide semiconductor) and CCD (charge coupled device) image sensors are two different technologies for capturing images digitally. Each has unique strengths and weaknesses, although there are no clear dividing lines.
CCD cameras have traditionally provided the highest image quality at the expense of system size and cost. This is beginning to change with the advent of S-CMOS sensors.
CMOS cameras offer more functions on the chip with lower power dissipation, but they have often required tradeoffs between image quality and cost.
As a result, most standard applications currently employ CMOS sensors with lower prices. More advanced applications, where highest image quality is essential, employ CCD sensors.
