SONY IMX290 HDMI Microscope Camera has 180x magnification, excellent image quality and is Autofocus


This is an Autofocus SONY IMX290 Industry Microscope Camera with HDMI output, ideal for PCB inspection and board repair work. This microscope has some great reviews among professionals and hobbyists and is priced at €466 without the standing base, monitor and LED light. It’s resolution is 1080P FULL HD @ 60FPS with integrated UI menu which can be easily controlled with a mouse connected to the camera. When observing objects of different heights (MAX 10CM), you do not need to adjust the lens’s working distance as autofocus will engage. Also, when you adjust the lens’s magnification, you do not need adjust the lens’s working distance for the same reason. The image quality on a computer monitor looks crispy clear as you can see on Dave’s Video Review below and this can take your repair and assembly work at another level.
