Upgrade your microscope with this Swift camera, now with a whopping 18 megapixels and faster camera-to-computer transfer speeds thanks to the included USB 3.0 cable! Perfect for live instruction, large lectures, and laboratory instruction, or for the serious hobbyist for image capture and sharing. The Swiftcam comes with several mounting options for maximum versatility: the reduction lens fits any 23.2mm trinocular port and can also be adapted for 30 and 30.5mm tubes.

Connect the camera via USB to your computer to capture pictures and video. The reduction lens keeps the camera image true to the size and clarity that is viewable through the microscope alone. The kit includes a software CD with the Swift Imaging 3.0 application and calibration slide to ensure accuracy of measurements. (Please note: the software comes on a CD-Rom. If your computer does not have a CD drive, contact Swift for a downloadable file.)
