Aven iLoupe: first portable microphotography camera

updated 08:45 am EST, Wed November 15, 2006

Aven iLoupe Camera

Scientific imagery company Aven has begun producing the iLoupe, a camera that the company says is the first microphotography camera that can truly be used in the field. It achieves its compact size by mounting a small, 60-150X microscopy lens on top of an otherwise standard Canon SD600 point-and-shoot camera, turning it into a field microscope. An LED light built into the lens helps illuminate subjects in between cracks or other dark areas. The mount can be removed at any time for conventional photography. The design is targeted primarily at crime scene investigators, factory inspectors, and scientists who may need detailed photo evidence but may not have access to specialized equipment, Aven says. The iLoupe is available now; Aven asks buyers to contact it for pricing.
