Magnification and webcam imaging

Recommended Posts

Hi folks,

I know how to work out magnification levels when visually observing but when imaging with a webcam how do you work out what magnification you are working at as there is no eyepiece to use in the calculation?

Cheers,

Chris

I have been told that the fov is roughly the same as a 5mm EP. Hope that helps

Yep, that's how I understand it to be too.

Does that mean the MAGNIFICATION on a toucam is the same as a 5mm EP, or just the FOV?

Seems incredibly powerful, especially when people are using things like 5x powermates as well.
