Ipevo Document Camera Microscope Adapter

Although this is not a new item, it is new to me and I finally got one to try it out. I have been using the Ipevo document camera for years (I've written about it here) and it's a great portable way to display what's going on on your actual desk top. But as it turns out there is a small rubber adapter that you can purchase that will let you view the image from a microscope.

When you purchase the adapter, it comes in four sizes. Two for the angled barrel and two for the straight barrel microscope and each of those in two diameters: 28mm and 33mm. It's as easy to install as simply sliding the correct adapter onto the eyepiece of your microscope. Once you do that then you will have to adjust its position on the eyepiece to see the whole image. You can see the adjustment process in the video below.
You obviously need the Ipevo P2V camera in order to use this but if you are already using one then it's a great addition to your tech arsenal and if you don't have the camera, the camera+adapter combo is still pretty cheap (or you can splurge on the combo that includes the stand extension, scan kit and the case). You can obviously get these on the Ipevo site or in Canada you can get them on Merconnet.
