RE: Microscope Photography: Winter Wonderland Edition

How very odd @phoenixwren, I dug out and tried using MY microscope camera today. None of my current computers has a working disc drive, so I can't use the software that came with it.
DRAT!!!
Here is a shot of an image from the back of a grocery store receipt

And here is the skin on the back of my hand

Looks like I need to moisturize (NOT)

Sort:  

Ha ha ha ha. Moisturize that skin!
I don't use the software that came with my microscope because it turned out to be spyware! I just plug it in and my laptop treats it as though my computer has a front facing camera. I "flip" to the other camera and there it is. :)

ha ha ha ha...software for a camera is spyware...😎 How apropos 👀

When I originally got the thing, I used the disk and the zoom and snap buttons on the device functioned. Now they don't. What I read about using the "plug-n-play" was that this was expected.
Minor inconvenience. What is a major inconvenience is my inability to find a surface that the suction cup mount will stick too.
Having to manually focus the think with the wheel ON the camera makes the image shake, breaks the camera loose from the suction cup and on and on.💣
I'm glad you've gotten yours to function for you @phoenixwren
