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.
