A camera that could star in CSI

Behind the neon colors, a microscope in disguise

The combination of neon colors and its surprising use makes this camera a natural for a recurring role in CSI: Miami.


Aven's iLoupe is a field microscope disguised as a fashion camera that can be used with three interchangeable lenses of 60x, 100x and 150x magnification. The camera itself is a 6-megapixel Canon SD600 with a lens adapter ring and a USB connection that can be used to blow up images on a larger screen. Aven says the iLoupe was made with crime scene investigations specifically in mind, though it can also be used for less glamorous tasks such as assembly-line car inspection.

Pricing is not yet known, but Mobile Magazine says it's available for purchase. And if you're in the market for something like this, it looks a lot nicer and easier to use than the traditional method.
