Now, let’s have a more detailed look at the Amscope IQCREW and check everything that this cool kid’s microscope and camera premium kit has to offer.
DESIGN & SPECS
Starting with the full kit’s design, the IQCREW Microscope and Camera Kit features a very simple and sleek design. The microscope unit itself features an ultra-durable and long-lasting all-metal frame that comes equipped with a forward-facing rotating turret.
This specific microscope comes equipped with an easy-to-use Focus System that includes higher quality optics, which basically provide kids, parents, and teachers with a precision focus experience. The microscope’s Focus System features a wide range of magnification-lenses that range from 120x all the way to 1200x.
Thanks to that, kids can easily get a clear view of whatever specimen they’re studying, all the way down to the cellular level.
Additionally, there’s also a single-use 20X eyepiece, which can be used for any specimens that do not require extra magnification.
Furthermore, the microscope also comes equipped with both a Natural Illumination Reflective Mirror and a LED Illumination Light. The mirror itself (located right under the stage) reflects all natural light onto the specimen that’s being studied.
Not only that, but if kids and their parents (or teachers) ever find themselves needing a bit more light, all they have to do is to simply rotate the mirror and that will trigger the microscope’s LED Illumination Light to turn on and greatly illuminate the specimen under study.
Lastly, the microscope also integrates a Rotating Four-Color Filter Wheel that can be used to conveniently enhance the contrast of specimens under study, which, obviously, should improve the viewing experience for both kids and their tutors (parents or teachers).
It’s also important to note that this Microscope Kit is completely battery powered, and it requires two (x2) AA Batteries to work.
USB 2.0 Eyepiece Color-Camera
As mentioned earlier, this premium learning kit for kids also includes a color digital USB 2.0 Eyepiece Color-Camera that conveniently allows children to easily connect the microscope unit to a computer (via the included Mini USB Cable) and then download or edit pictures of the specimens that they’re studying directly from the microscope.
The kit’s Camera is very easy to setup, as only 6 quick steps are needed to mount it onto the microscope and to get it running.
As stated earlier, the kit’s exclusive kid’s friendly patent-pending software allows for those specimens downloads with simplicity and ease, but this kid’s-friendly software also contains a Microscope How-To Section, as well as an already-prepared Sample Specimen Library, and an interactive real-time Specimen Image Editing Page.
Lastly, by recurring to the kit’s included Microscope Product Manual or the company’s Online Product Manual with already-prepared Experiments, kids and their tutors (either parents or teachers) are bound to have a blast learning together about the kit’s already prepared microscopic specimens.

I had a blast trying this out with my own kids. The microscope itself is of great quality, and the same goes for its magnification lenses, double-illumination system (reflective light mirror and LED Light) and its four-color filter wheel. Furthermore, the camera is ultra-easy to use, and its quick-installation guide makes it pretty straight-forward to use.
Overall, this makes for a great first learning microscope for your kids.
