I just thought I would start this thread to share with you all a great little bit of kit I picked up yesterday, it is a digital microscope. I bought it from my local computer shop near where I live in Western Australia and it's fantastic! As most of you probably know I collect NSDAP party badges so I wanted something to be able to get better photos of them and I came across this thing which I could see had applications for many other aspects of this hobby the moment I got it working. I paid $99 in the shop but I'm sure you could probably get it cheaper online, however $99 is a great price considering how much our hobby costs us. I just wanted to share it with you blokes as I think it could be useful to many others. The more I look at what this thing is capable of the more impressed I am, imagine the detailed microscopic pics you could take of an SS decal? Or the makers mark on an EK? etc... Something like this just makes it just that little bit more difficult for a faker, and thats got to be a good thing. Anyway, it is called: DIGITECH CAM DIG Microscope USB QC3247, It just plugs into a USB port on your computer and away you go. I am the worlds worst pic taker but even after one day of having this thing I could take these pics so I'm sure you blokes that are more computer savy will get great pics. To give you an idea of how good this thing is, the eagle in the attached pic is in the grip of my SS dagger! I have also included pics of a runic SS collar tab and Deschler skull - and a party badge.
