  • I'm looking for recommendations for a digital microscope fully compatible with Macs (usb/firewire) or a microscope with usb/firewire digital camera (again mac compatible). It must have at minimum 200x and 800x magnification settings. I want be able to record videos, and to capture still images (as, at minimum, TIFF and JPG).

    Question by James Piers Taylor

Dino-Lite has some 1.3 mega pixel models that are compatible with Mac if you're running 10.4 or higher on your operating system (Tiger). The only problem is 200x is as high as they go (and maintain Mac compatability) so that doesn't completely answer your question, sorry. But that it worth mentioning anyways.

The Dino-Lite AM411T is a good option.

I realize this is over a year later, but take a look at ProScope. They have a good reputation.

Cool tools really work.

A cool tool can be any book, gadget, software, video, map, hardware, material, or website that is tried and true. All reviews on this site are written by readers who have actually used the tool and others like it. Items can be either old or new as long as they are wonderful. We post things we like and ignore the rest. Suggestions for tools much better than what is recommended here are always wanted.
