    Very easy to get started. Compared to a conventional microscope, it is great to share the view on the iPad. We also like the convenience and ease of taking a photo or making a video.

    A very nice piece of kit.
    Out of the currently available portable microscopes, this one, in my opinion, is the best combination of portability, convenience and versatility.
