The First Handheld 5.0″ LCD HD Video Magnifier


If you, a relative, friend or someone you know is struggling to read with an off-the-shelf optical magnifying glass, our CANDY GRIP can help.If you have Macular Degeneration or another low vision condition and you’re using a 4x or higher optical reading magnifier, CANDY GRIP is ideally designed for you to read more comfortably to retain your independence whether you’re at home, in a restaurant, in the department or grocery store or anywhere.


Use as a Handheld or Stand Magnifier


CANDY GRIP is the first, and currently the only, handheld (with handle) 5.0″ LCD HD video magnifier. Its unique, ergonomic 3-position handle is comfortably held in the center-balanced position, for right-handed or left-handed use.


Alternatively, use CANDY GRIP as a Stand magnifier. Just pull out either the 20mm or 40mm leg set and CANDY GRIP operates similar to an optical stand magnifier.  To view the display screen at a slight angle, pull out only one 40mm leg.


5.0″ Wide-Screen LCD HD Image 


CANDY GRIP’s 5.0 ” LCD screen size is the new standard for large screen, yet portable (weighing under 10 ounces) video magnifiers. CANDY GRIP’s large 5.0″ 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. The additional screen display area and HD image quality allow it to be an ideal magnifier for low vision.


Continuous Digital Zoom Magnification


Choose a comfortable reading size from 2.8x to 22x. Continuous digital zoom magnification easily increases or decreases the size of the text, photo or object being viewed. CANDY GRIP doesn’t limit you to only 3 or 4 preset magnification choices as most other portable video magnifiers.


Center-position Camera 


It’s intuitive! The center-position camera makes it easy to know where you are reading. Large and conveniently located buttons are easy to find and press. All function buttons are located on or adjacent to the handle, including the Freeze Image button.


4.5 Hour Rechargeable Lithium Battery


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