I am really impressed with the Veho VMS-001. It is very easy and quick to set-up and is just as easy to use. The stand which is included is anodised metal so looks good as wellas being very sturdy. It holds the microscope firmly once locked making for a clear and steady picture and it employs two ball joints making it very flexible. The microscope itself appears well made and the clarity of the subject is excellent. Focusing is easy though when zoomed in fully you get a bit of handshake when its not in the stand but thats not the microscopes fault. The software is easy to use and there are a good amount of settings you can play with to suit your needs. Overall for under £50 you can have weeks of entertainment before you even consider letting the kids having a go. This could be my greatest ever gadget purchase and if you like gadgets, get it on your Christmas list......see what's really in that Turkey!!

I absolutely love this camera. Admittedly it is a gimmick and I have no real purpose for one, but what the heck.

I have uploaded some images where I have zoomed down on a tape measure so you get some idea of how close you can get.

The camera takes decent enough pictures. OK it is not a high pixel camera, but then you are hardly likely to be taking holiday snaps with it. The camera comes with a stand for steady shots, but is equally good hand held. There are 4 L.E.D lights that illuminate the subject quite well and a clear plastic lens cap which can be photographed through if necessary. The view on screen is live time and snaps can be taken by using the button on the camera or the PC. You can also record videos from it.

Focus is by means of a large smooth scrolling wheel, which, unfortunately, can only be controlled by hand. The software will allow you to switch the LEDs on/off automatically, but I found this to be a nuisance, lights on all the time seems to be just fine.

The only thing I can forsee as being a problem is the lead (1.5 m long) that exits out of the back of the camera. I can see this lead twisting around / back and forth in normal use until the wires inside snap. I am starting to see a little distortion under the sleeve now and I am very careful with cable management.

If you are likely to need to take photos of small items or zoom in to show detail then this camera is ideal. I can see it being a real bonus for Ebayers, people who want to record serial numbers and cant get a decent macro on their camera or for people who undertake watch repairs etc.

Wish I had waited for the 400x scope!

I bought this camera for a workshop project. I was a little wary because of the negative reports regarding Windows XP. Sure enough the problems are there!! I downloaded the latest software from the Veho website but initially I could not get anything to work - Windows XP would not recognise the usb camera at all. After trying several different ways to load the software nothing seemed to work.
In desperation I tried using a USB socket on a small USB hub I have - the hub is plugged into the back of the computer. Suddenly, the computer recognised the camera - eureka- hold it, not so fast. Starting the software, it reported that it could not find the camera.
I have a copy of AMCAP ( available on the net) and the camera works fine with that software. I also tried the video capture feature in Windows Moviemaker ...... that works too.
It seems to me that the first problem is that the Camera only works with USB 2.0, hence the difference on my computer with the front USB socket and the rear connected hub.
As for the Microcapture software, I just cannot make it work on Windows XP Professional.

POSTSCRIPT

I have since emailed the VEHO website. They pointed me at the latest software, which is not on their downloads page. Installed the new drivers and Microcapture software on my PC (Windows XP Professional SP3) - installed without problems - microscope works great.

regards,

MP

I guess that this is not supposed to be a technical support forum, but I found all of your reviews very helpful before I bought, to the extent that I decided not to install the product on my main machine for fear of screwing it up, but on a spare Vaio instead.

Sure enough it installed fine, but I then discovered that it stopped my 3G dongle working on that PC. Even uninstalling the microscope drivers did not get it working again.

I won't bore you with all the diagnostics, but I _really_ got the bonnet (hood) up and was down at the Windows Core API level before I dicovered that the culprit is a program called FixCamera.exe.

You will not see this running in the normal Alt-Tab sequence, but if you go into Task Manager you will see it. You will also find it in the Run section of your Registry.

To prevent the other conflicts you should End Process FixCamera.exe in Task manager.

If you know how to remove it from your Registry you should do that as well, but it does have a habit of coming back.

I trust that 100/100 of you will find this useful ;-)
