Mantis Elite-Cam HD is a variant of the successful Mantis Elite stereo microscope, with an integrated USB2.0 digital camera, bringing image capture capabilities to the outstanding optical performance of Mantis.

By adding an HD camera to Mantis Elite, Vision Engineering has created a supremely capable inspection solution, combining the outstanding 3D optics of Mantis Elite with the power and flexibility of HD image capture. Inspect, document and share your precision magnification tasks with ease.

Simple, easy-to-use image and video capture software is included as standard to allow you to get up and running quickly.
