I recently added to my diagnostic tools, a handheld magnifier by eschenbach. It is actually a videomagnifier that looks like a hand-held magnifier. Its super light and portable. Unbelievable. Magnification is 3x and 6x, and with flexible viewing angles of up to 170 degrees. It has a 2.0 megapixel camera having the ability to freeze and capture images. The contrast is very good and the images are very sharp. This device is very easy to use, and it can be used outdoors or in the sunlight. the images are colored, black and white or white on black. This device can be used for people with macular degeneration too.
