Take Super -Closeups with the Digital MagniCam -

the First PC Accessory Camera with 150X Magnification
Great for Injuries, Skin Problems, Jewelry, Stamps, Insects & More

ENGLEWOOD, N.J - If you need a super -closeup of a nasty gash on your arm, the fine detail in a vintage postage stamp, or a species of spider that seems to be mounting an all -out assault on your home, reach for the new Digital MagniCam from JJ Communications - the first PC accessory camera with an optical zoom function that can enlarge images up to 150 times.

Shaped like an electric toothbrush with a lens on the head end, this $199.95 "digital microscope" produces highly magnified color images of wounds, blemishes, moles, pores, fingernails, jewelry, or any other object or area too small to be captured in detail by a standard camera - from a burr in your dog's fur or an abnormality in your parakeet's beak to a prize Indian head/buffalo nickel in your coin collection.

Just connect the MagniCam to your PC via USB cable, frame the shot on your computer monitor, turn the unit's focus knob to achieve the desired magnification, and press the button. The resulting 320,000 -pixel image can be displayed at resolutions ranging from 160x120 to 640x480; imported into your digital imaging software as a bitmap file for manipulation and/or archiving; and printed or emailed to physicians, veterinarians, beauty salons, pest control services and other professionals for consultation purposes.

The MagniCam can also record up to 13 minutes of audio - a useful feature for explaining an image you are sharing with a professional ("You're looking at a cut my son got when he fell off his bike") - and double as a webcam for video conferencing. Contrast, brightness, saturation and sharpness are adjustable via the software that comes with the camera.

The product works with any Pentium 166Mhz or higher PC with a USB port, 32MB memory, Windows 98SE/2000/ME/XP, and a monitor with a minimum 640x480 resolution and 16 -bit color. (A 64MB memory and 24 -bit color are recommended.) It ships with an application CD, a stand, a 3.5 -foot USB cable, and a sanitary cover for use in taking mouth, ear and nose photos. Replacement covers are available separately.

The Digital MagniCam is available at http://www.jjcomm.com/product/MagniCam.htm and from select mass market retailers, catalogs and specialty stores.
