I cannot describe what an excellent little gadget this is!.. After reading some of the reviews, I was slightly hesitant to get this, but I'm so glad we did!! The Zoomy 2.0 is so easy to use!.. Even my 6 year old can set it up and use it unaided! We have all had so much fun looking at leaves, different materials, and flowers close up. Simply connect to a computer, download the program, and off you go!.. Twist the top of the Zoomy to focus, and just place a live the item you want to look at.. it's as simple as that! The Zoomy gives such clear pictures, and you can even take a photo of the image to look at in depth later! It is perfectly sized for little hands.. and such an ideal way to look in depth at the world around you! I would definitely recommend!!

Windows has no idea what this thing is

The software works great for the built-in camera, but doesn't recognize this one. Windows doesn't even know that it is a camera, it just puts it under "other devices". I tried using it with AMCap, but that didn't work either. (AMCap worked great until it was bought out by someone else). Maybe you just need an older version of AMCap.

This is the best tool I have for collecting coins. I can see details, mint errors and other features of the coin. The only drawback is that it needs a stand to take pictures with as hand held photos are difficult to hold still

From the minute we got it set up on the computer, we were in love! Both my 12 year old and my 7 year old were enthralled! (I loved it too!) We looked up everything from the difference between salt and sugar, to leaves we found, our fingerprints, our scalps and hair, the cats paws..... Even looked inside our noses! 🤣. They don't want to stop looking!

I found this in my teachers cupboard, it works very well! I've been using this to look at sand, and they loooove seeing what sand is actually made of. It has a very high magnification, and the light is perfect. Easy to use, works on both my mac and pc with minimal setup.

The download of your Mac SW will not run on the latest Mac OS by far. The manual says it's compatible with Mac OS 10.11.x which was released in July 2015 with the last dot release July 2016. That's 4 to 5 year old OS is the latest?!? Really unacceptable to advertise it as Mac compatible if it's so horribly out of date. Ruined a birthday present.

Does your child have an inquisitive mind? I know for a fact that some of them do and others just don't. The 'Learning Resources Zoomy 2.0' is the type of device that is perfect for the science mad kid, but would go down like a wet balloon to a child with no interest in the subject. Essentially, this is a neat bit of kit that allows you to plug and play a camera/microscope into your computer. The round look and feel means that it is easy to pick up and use with smaller hands. To zoom you twist the camera and you can get pretty deep; it is certainly easier than trying to use a microscope and you get the same effect. Another added feature by using the computer software is that you can take stills of what you are looking at and also mini movies. The quality of the camera is decent enough, but perhaps not the HD we are increasingly used to. As this is a tool for children to get into science at an affordable cost, this is not really an issue. You lose a little definition as you zoom to the extreme, but some tweaking with the focus and the quality is certainly of a high enough standard for a hobbyist. The Zoomy is essentially a web camera with added features and Windows treats it like this, when you plug it in you don't have to install from the CD as the drivers should automatically load. The software that comes on the disc is on the basic side, but this is in keeping with the age that the camera is aimed at, kids should be taking photos and making mini videos within minutes. Is the Zoomy fun? It depends on the child. I would have loved it as a kid as you can see the detail of what things are made up from, but for some children it will be like trying to bring the classroom home. There is not real attempt at making the use of the camera a game; the software could have tried doing something clever here. However, for the right child the power of the microscope alone will be enjoyment.

I am a Cub leader, used this on our Groups camp to explore nature around them, Cubs when hunting for weird and wonderful items to look at with Zoomy, they loved the detail it gave on the item, and it caused them to hunt harder, just so they could look again.
