  11. Measuring with Dino-Eye eyepiece camera
    To measure with the Dino-Eye, use the magnification of the objective lens as the "input magnification" and then use the calibration feature. When calibrating, the "input magnification" box should also contain the value of the objective lens magnification. After calibrating, the objective lens can be changed as long as the "input magnification" box is also updated to reflect the change. Learn More
  12. About video codecs
    The 5MP (2592 x 1944) resolution Dino-Lite models make use of one of two codecs (coder-decoder) to transmit the live image from the device to a computer, MJPEG or YUY2. The MJPEG codec uses more compression, resulting in a higher frame rate and a lower quality image. The YUY2 uses less compression, resulting in a higher quality image and a lower frame rate. Thus it is recommended to use the MJPEG codec when the specimen or the microscope will be moving, and the YUY2 codec when both the specimen and the microscope are stationary and/or the highest image quality is required..
