I was given this as a loaner: It is a camera for people with low vision. it has 72x magnification, Auto focus, and focus lock. it can connect to a tv/computer via RCA Video cable or an adapter box with other outputs. so it actually sends a live signal to the PC or TV. what i am wondering is if it is hooked up to a PC or laptop, is there a way to use it to snap pictures? this thing puts any camera i ever had to shame. I mean, i counted molecules on Ransack's wings with it. it is that great.
