    The Stanley Gibbons UM05 USB Digital Autofocus Microscope is the first USB microscope we have sold that allows you to capture an image of the whole stamp with ease and is ideal as a quick and simple alternative to scanning.

    "This has to be one of the best tools I have ever purchased for my business. Since buying this my sales have gone through the roof as a result of stunning grade photos" - Dave Allwright, 'Stamps n All'.

    Whether you are creating your own album pages, sharing images of your collection with fellow philatelists, producing an image library for insurance or valuations or want to see your collection in greater detail, this microscope makes the process easier than ever.

    The autofocus option allows you to automatically zoom with a magnification ratio of 1-80x, allowing you see any object at 320x on a 22” monitor. This feature removes the hassle of trying to focus in on fine details such as errors, plate numbers and flaws. Once the operating software is loaded on your computer, simply plug in the UM05 and, with one click of the focus button on-screen, you will quickly receive the clearest images automatically.

    You can also take photos, record videos and adjust the brightness of the microscope’s 4 inbuilt LEDs from your computer, allowing you set the microscope up on its stand and take multiple images without having to reposition anything. The stand also makes it easier than ever to capture the entire stamp in full detail.

    The software provided also has features handy tools, including a useful measurement function to gauge the length, angle and area of anything you place under it.
