Real time USB microscope?

by 0miker0 on Wed Dec 26, 2012 7:33 pm

I'm looking for a cheap microscope for surface mount soldering and I'm wondering if all USB type have a delay? A real stereo, non USB one would be perfect but they are too expensive for a hobby one at home.

the aluminum thin one is faster than the plastic one, we find it is fine for real-time soldering but it does depend on the person! everyone has a 'limit' to how much delay their eyes can handle before it feels funny :)
