I ordered two of these from different sellers. This one is $1.70 more. This comes with a small bag or case to hold the microscope, no room for the clip. No instructions with this. The less expensive (and as far as I can see identical one) comes with two small bags, one for the microscope, the other larger one is quite nice and holds both the microscope and clip.
If I didn't have the other in hand for comparison, I would have given this 5 stars. Not having loose parts and some instructions is worth a star.
The Macro lens on the three-lens kit from this same maker is almost as powerful but gives you full frame shots.
Things to keep in mind:
- you're going to want to make a stand to use this device with an iPad or iPhone, it's tiring to hold the device (and especially larger devices) to get that perfect shot. You do have to hold the camera still to get the best possible picture. Textbooks piled (2-3) usually makes the best, cheap stands.
- It is a microscope, images are going to be inverted. Perfect for those introductory microscope skills for students.
- the battery run light is next to the bottom lens, this is very unlike a traditional microscope. You cannot put some specimens on a black background, you're often better with using a sheet of copy paper and letting the light bounce from the paper to the specimen.
- liquid specimens take patience to get the images you need, best bet is always either prepared slides or dry specimens
- There is a focus on the device, it helps take some of the guess work out of waiting for the camera to focus
- the bracket the microscope screws into is for multiple devices, it does take some learning to get the microscope centered over the camera.
- The cameras of all devices are trained to take square/rectangle pictures. Your image will be a circle within a giant black rectangle. Cropping before printing is a must.
