HIROX KH-7700 3D Digital Video Microscope

The HIROX KH-7700 3D Digital Video Microscope is an optical inspection microscope used to image objects with rough surfaces or irregular topology, do optical comparisons, measure feature sizes in two or three dimensions, generate 3D profiles, and view objects from multiple perspectives. The optics are optimized for digital imaging, and it has a significantly larger depth of field than conventional optical microscopes. It also has a motor driven prism system that makes it possible to record streaming video movies of objects viewed from a rotating perspective.
