New 200X Microscope Camera
« on: February 03, 2014, 08:43:09 PM »
Just mounted my 200X Microscope Camera I got off Ebay onto my machine, here are a few pics.

I plan on using the CopyCat Wizard for some projects.

The pics of the quarters are from two different quarters, then there's a couple pics of a ten dollar bill.

Yes, I purchased the license for CopyCat and plan to use the camera to probe and also try to use it for parts replication.

Have you had any luck so far, replicating?

I would suggest that you add an Xbox 360 to be used along with the camera.
Have fun .....

Yes that would be nice, I need to do some reading on adding the Xbox controller, I know nothing about it.

The XBOX 360, which is a handheld game controller, acts like 2 mpg's and can be configured numerous ways to yor liking.
So it easy to go from slow to rapid movement or just creep into position. This allows you concenterate on movement and is natural in use.
Thus it saves time when using Copycat to trace out an outline of the object.

Hey John, just now looking at the cameras, so many !
Care to tell which one you chose ?
Your quality looks nice. I'd hate to get a clunker.  :)

Thanks,
Russ

Does that camera allow for adjusting the focus and when done are you limited in the relief  ( distance from camera front to viewd piece)?
Besides magnification you also want some working distance. That's why I use a cheap web camera with manual adjustment along with a magnifying lense
and can get a good comprimise on the working distance.

Don't think you want to change magnification or adjust as that will change the actual viewed location........

FWIW,
