The Christmas season is also a season of rebates, and Aven Inc. is joining the holiday cash back givers. They are also offering their buyers $300 cash back on the iLoupe Starter Pack and $350 cash back on the iLoupe Pro Pack with three lenses.
The iLoupe microscope-camera combination uses a Canon SD600 digital camera and a removable lens attachment. This is designed for field research that needs to take photos of microscopic subjects. The iLoupe can magnify objects up to 150 times and can detect objects as small as 6mm to 10 microns.
Aven says the iLoupe Starter Pack normally retails for $1255 and includes the 6-megapixel Canon SD600 with an adapter ring, LED lighting module, and a 10x-60x objective lens. The iLoupe Pro Pack adds two more lenses, the 20x-100x and the 30x-150x lens and retails for $1755 without the rebate, according to a customer service representative.
