USB Web Cam with Telescope

USB Webcam with Telescope

How good is your webcam? Well, most of us would try to compare the quality in terms of brands. Some professionals would say CCD web cams are far more superb than CMOS web cams. Furthermore, there are those who can rotate and turn by itself. Basically, even with the advanced technology of these latest webcams, they all have one weakness. That is, these traditional hardwares are only capable of focusing near objects, and nothing more. Objects are a distant would even appear blur.

Standards are so restrictive these days and who would one actually imagine of having a USB web cam mounted with a telescope? That’s true! As such, even distant objects would appear to be extremely clear and capable of reproducing high quality images on your computer.


Available from Hong Kong, this little piece of equipment costs only US$26.00! I won’t say what you can really do with this Telescopic Web cam, but there are definitely much more applications you can exploit using with this device, such as one quoted from i4u News:

Hello Sirs!

Some minutes ago I found this website while doing internet-research. A very nice offer and a good price!
Nevertheless I recognized some rather unusual expressions – as if a text was translated by someone with more theoretical knowledge of the english language.
Since it is my job work with documents in english I am able to make the text (description of the USB-telescope) above much more readable in the english version. Even without knowing the original text or language!
After my “translation”, readers will not be able to recognize the “not-english-origin”.
Maybe You are interested in a german, or as well a dutch version of above text? Would be very nice if You wanted to create additional sales in Germany and/or the Netherlands – sell there directly! Do You allready trade there? Do You allready have a represantative?

Kind regards

Hello again, Sirs!

At closer look I have to admit I overdid the non-englishness of some of the expressions. Mostly they are just other expressions as I am used in most of the texts I have around.
So sorry, but the other questions about texts in german or durch could still be delivered, if You want!

Kind regards
