Features & Highlights


  • Crystal-clear, Color-rich HD-quality Image

The new CANDY 5 features a 5” high-definition LCD, ensuring a clear, high-quality image. The large LCD display provides 4x greater field of view than a similar magnification optical magnifier, and the HD image quality provides a 3x higher resolution from the camera to the LCD.


  • Image Capture

Save Up to 5 images. Easily find and review any saved image.


  • User-customizable Color Contrast Settings

Easily customize 4 selectable color modes from a number of preset combinations. Users can also disable unused options to simplify menu choices to only those which they use most often.


  • Near-distance View

Use Near-distance View to see or capture a shop sign, store prices, or items on a store shelf.


  • Unique Mirror View (Self View) Image

Use Mirror View to check your make-up and perform personal grooming. A dedicated second camera makes this unique feature possible.


  • Auto Focus

CANDY 5 will quickly auto-focus when the user changes from close-up to near-distance viewing.


  • Continuous Digital Zoom

Continuous zoom allows you to quickly adjust your magnification level without the need for multiple button presses. CANDY 5 HD doesn’t limit you to only 3 or 4 preset magnification choices as most other portable video magnifiers.


  • Large Display, Real Time Digital Clock

Quickly check the current time right on your CANDY 5 HD.


  • 4.5 Hour Rechargeable Lithium Battery

Featuring 4.5 hours of battery use time on a full charge, CANDY 5 HD has the longest lasting battery run time among handheld video magnifiers. The built-in rechargeable lithium battery recharges within 3 hours with the included AC adapter.


  • Center-position Camera

The center-position camera makes it easy to know where you are reading.
