While I’ve used digital microscopes for soldering in the past, they’ve never been as full-featured as this ARRABLON. The stand-out feature is the generous 7″ LCD screen, which provides a detailed, wide view of what you’re magnifying. That’s not the only great thing in its feature-set, however.
In the box, you get the microscope, base with two extra LED lights on goose arms, microUSB charging/power cable, 32GB microSD card, mini CD, wired remote to take photos and videos without using the on-screen buttons, calibration card, and instructions. If you install the included microSD card, the microscope can take 12MP photos (4023×3024 resolution) or up to 1920×1080 30FPS video. Magnification range is from 50X (minimum) to 1200X (maximum).
Besides using the microUSB cable to both charge the internal battery or provide external power, you can also plug the microscope into your PC or Mac, which recognizes it as a standard camera. Naturally, this gives you a view as large as your monitor. It’s a neat option, though one I’ll likely not use quite as often only because the screen it comes with is plenty large for the type of soldering that I tend to do.
This is a wonderfully full-featured product. It’s easy to assemble and has a ton of use cases, particularly with the ability to capture photos and video, and pretty much automatically work as a camera with your computer. The built-in screen and easy adjustment of height, angles, and lighting make it incredibly useful for all kinds of magnification needs. I highly recommend this product if you’re looking for a really versatile and useful digital microscope.
