The Carson Optical zPix 200 provides a resolution of 1280 X 1024 pixels (1.3 Megapixels) and up to 1600 X 1200 by interpolation. This microscope has a ring of LEDs at the bottom to allow even illumination of your specimens. You can use with slides on the slide holder base or use just by putting the scope over an object you wish to magnify. There is a 5X optical zoom that provides magnifications from 26X to 130X. Because you can use direct contact, you can take close-up photos of small objects such as gemstones, leaves, insects, and other nature/scientific subjects.

Please Note: The older model of this microscope that has been advertised elsewhere on eBay gives only about 1/4 of this resolution with 640 X 480 pixels (0.3 Megapixels). While the older version is still currently available, we thought that our customers would prefer the higher resolution of this model.

This digital microscope uses USB 2.0 (or 1.1). Software is provided for both Windows version 98SE or later and Mac OS X version 10.4 or later. The USB cable on this microscope plugs right into the USB 2.0 (or 1.1) port on your computer.

As a bonus for our customers, we will provide the following additional accessories for a limited time:

  • Prepared slides - 4 prepared slides (bonus of 3 additional)
  • Blank slides - 10 slides (bonus of 7 additional)
  • Cover Slips - bonus of 10
  • Forceps
  • Eyedropper
  • Software
  • USB Cable
  • Detailed Written Manual - 58 pages (English)
The bonus prepared slides that are provided include the top 2 above and 2 others. Additional prepared slides, including others shown in the photos, are available as an option. The bottom 2 prepared slides shown in the photographs are not included but are available as an option.

Shipping cost within the United States for this microscope would be $8 by priority mail. Please send us an email for postage outside the US.
