Why Camβ is better than your smartphone

Unlike a digital camera, Camβ’s 4 LED illumination is optimised for magnified imaging, so you can see the subject clearly and evenly illuminated.

To facilitate viewing objects where reflections may be an issue, the lighting can be cycled through four settings. The brightness of the LED’s can also be adjusted to optimise viewing.


  • Optics optimised for close working
  • Illumination configured for close working
  • Image security (no connection to Wifi)
  • Live HDMI TV-out
  • Secure grip for left and right hand use

Stability leg

The Camβ is provided with a flip out leg to aid stability at high magnification which is located around the lens on the underside. Simply flip it out fully to help maintain the ideal distance from the item you are viewing. Click it back in place when not in use.

Industrial and production applications

Camβ portal digital magnifier is great for documenting faults and inspection of immobile subjects. It is very useful when inspectiing electronics, such as cable connections within broadband cabinets.

Camβ is well suited in production environments. It is handy for inspection subjects in dark or hard to reach areas. Also ideal in secure environments where company's policy disallows the use of mobile phones. Simple operation allows for quick parts documentation and /or training and quality assurance.

Medical related applications

From inspection of sterilised medical equipment to medical devices, Camβ offers a convenient way of meeting critical inspection and documentation requirements.

Dental prosthetics need to be tailored for each individual person and often requires inspection and image documentation for quality purposes. Other dental uses include smile evaluation for cosmetic dental consultation.

Typical applications include automotive, aviation, watchmaking, general manufacturing as well as a low vision magnification aid.
