Introducing our newest Dino-Lite, the AM4815ZTL handheld digital microscope with a new generation digital sensor, state-of-the-art design and 5X-140X continuous zoom magnification with extended working distance (up to 14"). This new model also showcases two brand new Dino-Lite features: 1) Extended Depth of Field (EDOF) for imaging into holes or down vertical objects, and 2) Extended Dynamic Range (EDR) for revealing fine surface details from shiny, reflective surfaces.
Extended Depth of Field (EDOF)
The AM4815ZTL EDOF capture mode is ideal for imaging surface contours of cavities, holes or objects protruding up toward the microscope. The function is activated by clicking the EDOF icon on the software. The EDOF mode then takes several images at slightly different heights, or focal planes, and digitally "stacks" them within the software to create one integrated image with depth contours in sharp focus.
Extended Dynamic Range (EDR)
In similar fashion, the AM4815ZTL EDR capture mode is designed for imaging surface contours of highly reflective materials like plastics, metals and fiber optics. The EDR mode is activated by clicking the EDR icon on the software. EDR then takes several images at slightly different exposure levels, and digitally integrates them within the software. The result is one composite image with less glare and greater surface detail than standard ring polarization can achieve.
The new model also features an upgraded image sensor for enhanced image quality and sharpness with less aberration and vignetting. Unlike earlier AM series microscopes, the AM4815ZTL now boasts a fully-usable magnification range from 5X up through 140X with no gaps in coverage, adding exceptional versatility and value to the package. With uniform illumination by 8 white, controllable LEDs and a versatile stand like the MS35B, you can view more surface details, making the AM4815ZTL well-suited for industrial inspection duties, as well as medical diagnostic applications or rock and mineral identification.
Along with continuous zoom magnification, the new AM4815ZTL also features another "first" for the AM series, six new removable nozzles, similar to those found only on the AD series microscopes. They include a sealed cap for dust protection, a diffuser cap for soft lighting contrast and an open collar for extended working distance. Used in combination, they provide additional imaging flexibility and can be removed for greater standoff working distance at high magnification settings.
Standard features include a 2nd-generation housing with smoother focus wheel movement, magnification scroll lock and reinforced USB connection. A 1.3 MP CMOS chip provides vivid color resolution with Microtouch image capture for more convenient snap shots. Simply touch the end of the microscope to take a picture. The microscope also enables live video (30fps) and time-lapse video. Eight built-in LED lights with On/Off switch provide built-in illumination. The microscope is Windows PC-compatible with included measuring software and a 2 year warranty.

Dino-Lite offer a wide range of stands, which are recommended for all but the lowest magnification levels. For your convenience, we have selected some of the more popular stands for this microscope. Simply select one of the above which are offered as optional items. NOT: An additional extension pole (MSA2P) will be needed when using the MS35B stand during observations at 10X and below.
Software (EDOF & EDR - Windows-Only)
For the AM4815ZTL, Dino-Lite includes software offering full compatibility with Windows and MAC OS 10.9 and higher. We have found the software to be robust and reliable with some great features as follows: image capture, storage and email, live and time lapse video (up to 30fps), annotation, geotagging, full screen capability, auto and manual exposure control, picture within picture zoom (magnifier) and more.
Measuring software is versatile and includes a calibration slide for accuracy. Measuring capabilities include linear and geometric as well as circular and point-to-line. Above all the color resolution is excellent due to fixed white-balance calibration which is set at the factory using a jeweler's color balance. Finally, images can be stored in a wide range of popular formats including JPG and BMP among others. Note: EDOF & EDR are available to MAC users running Windows Parallels on MAC OS.
FREE DinoVision Software
There is also additional, free software available for download: DinoVision enables easy image drag-and-drop, split, overlay and comparison, which has proven useful for Forensic Scientists and more sophisticated users where image manipulation is important.
