The Carson zOrb is a USB digital microscope with an integrated camera that displays the magnified images it collects right on a computer screen. Its impressive 53-times magnification (on a 21-inch monitor) allows users to see details of ordinary objects that they never knew existed, and its built-in internal light source ensures a clear and bright picture of whatever is being viewed. Its built-in 640-by-480-resolution digital camera makes it easy to save images captured with the unit on the attached computer’s storage device, and it even captures close focus video. The Carson zOrb is compatible with Microsoft Windows 98SE, ME, 2000, XP, XP Service Pack 3 Upgrade, Vista, Windows 7 and MAC OSX 10.4 or later. A USB 2.0 port is required.
