Today we’re taking an inside look into the newest members of the Dino-Lite family, the EdgePLUS series

The Dino-Lite EdgePLUS series sets a new standard in image quality and performance of handheld digital microscopes. As technology progresses and demand for specialized products increases, Dino-Lite is dedicated to manufacturing high-quality digital microscopes that keep pace with technological advancements.

Now, the Dino-Lite EdgePLUS series has come to raise the bar to even higher levels. The new EdgePLUS series provides users an indispensable tool for inspection, analysis, and image documentation.

High-quality imaging with EdgePLUS series

While building on top of the 1.3MP Edge series, the Dino-Lite team improved the new series color fidelity, contrast, sensitivity, and live imaging frame rate. The new Dino-Lite EdgePLUS series models provide professional and reliable hand-held digital microscopes capable of high-quality image acquisition.

Color fidelity

Color reproducibility is an important aspect of digital image processing that affects the overall image quality. The new EdgePLUS series offers unrivaled natural-looking color images.



EdgePLUS series delivers images with higher contrast than the 1.3MP Edge series. Expect clearer image details when imaging with the EdgePLUS series.

Frame rate

With upgraded CMOS sensors and the use of low-loss compression MJPEG format, the Edge PLUS series microscopes offer higher-quality live imaging at up to 30 FPS, doubling the 1.3MP Edge series frame rate performance.

High sensitivity

The EdgePLUS series high sensitivity sensors may detect faint features that would otherwise remain unseen— useful when viewing samples under fluorescence, UV, and infrared.

Improved EDOF

Being at the forefront of digital microscopy, Dino-Lite has developed several microscopes capable of capturing EDOF images with the click of a button. EdgePLUS AM4917’s further improved optics and delicate focus control provide crisper, all-in-focus EDOF images.

An EDOF composite image can provide fine details from different depth planes. The magnified sections display layers at different depths, all showing high-quality and detailed features.

Depth Information

Acquiring more useful depth information is now possible with EdgePLUS AM4917 delicate focus control. By indicating the variations in focus shifts, users can obtain depth information of grooves, holes, and other types of topographical variations.
