Default help to see your finds/dates

Just got this. It slips right on your phone and magnifies 60X. It has a light too.
Works great.
My boss sells them for disease detection on plants.

U can see the date so clearly on a penny. And even a spec of dirt just under the "9"

Thought you all might be interested. Especially those who have trouble taking photos or seeing dates.

If anyone is interested in buying one, here is a link to his company contact page.

http://standupgardens.com/contact-us/

Just call or email him and leave a message about wanting to order the phone camera microscope and he will get right back to you soon.
Normally he includes them with his stand up gardens but since I told him there's another use for them, he is going to sell them individually.
Best part is... these are NOT expensive. Like ten or twenty bucks!
Check out his home page too. Neat little self sufficient gardens.

ALSO I DONT HAVE A I-PHONE. I HAVE A SAMSUNG S6 WITH BAD CAMERA AND IT STILL WORKS GREAT. I BET ITS BETTER WITH A I-PHONE.
I REALLY THINK THIS IS GREAT FOR WHAT WE DO!

I will get his website today at work. And put it on this thread today after work. I should have had it ALREADY but was super excited about how this thing worked.
So check back around 4pm EST.

Man! File under..."Now why didnt I think of that!" Its a real pain to try to hold a loupe in front of the lens and snap a shot of a date or a ring marking..Plus, a guy could use it in field instead of a loupe to take a detailed look at a find by using their phone!...

You are right, this invention is just what we need! Thanks for the heads up Hannibal!

I have a 10X version that I've never used...but 60X might be good to have...generally I use my 10X loupe, but this is better for taking pictures.

Call or email and tell him you are looking for just the phone camera microscope. He will get right back to you soon if you message. They are not expensive. Think that he said less than $20!!!

I just updated post with a contact page for his website.

When I saw it I asked for one and have had it a few weeks and now I see what it can do. Im definitely keeping it on me while detecting. And I have good eyes too
