Candy 5 HD CCTV


>>Hi. I’m Wade Wingler with the Indata Project
at Easter Seals Crossroads in Indiana. When you have low vision you need to have your
magnification where you need it, when you need it. Belva Smith is going to show us what’s
new with the Candy line of product. Check this out.
>>Belva: Hi. I’m Belva and welcome to today’s tech tip. Today we’re going to take a look
at the Candy HD. This is the new version of an old handheld magnifier that had been around
for awhile. They kinda improved it a little bit and brought it back out to us and they
are calling it The Candy 5 HD. It has the same type of handle that the other one had
with the different levels and it also still has the stand on the back so you can lay it
down directly on top of something that your trying to magnify, but included with the new
HD is this stand, which a lot of the handheld magnifiers do have a reading stand that you
can purchase as an extra to go along with it. But, there actually including it with
this so I kinda like that so you don’t have to worry about making that extra purchase
if you want to get it. Also, the Candy HD is doing distance viewing now. I don’t really
remember if the old one did so I’m just going to capture a picture across the room here
and then once I’ve got it captured I can use my function buttons to zoom it in, zoom it
out, change my color modes, and I can actually store up to 5 pictures on here as well. And
when you get to the 6th picture it will just override so make sure that if you have 5 of
them in there your not putting a 6th one on there and going to lose something that you
want. The power button is on the bottom. There is, this is something about their design that
they are very happy about, the camera capture button is right here and it can be used actually
they say all of the buttons can be operated by your thumb. I disagree with that because
I happen to be a small handed person and so it’s really not very comfortable for me to
try to use my thumbs. But, I guess if you’re a bigger person with bigger hands it would
probably be true. This will do two times to ten times magnification when it’s in the stand
and two to twenty-two times when you’re holding it. It also does self viewing so I can turn
the camera around and look at myself if I’m trying to pluck my eyebrows or put on my makeup
which we don’t talk about that, but that is some of the old features in the new design
of the Candy 5 HD. You also get a leather carrying case and a handle , strap handle,
which I didn’t pull out of the pack. If you want more information on the Candy, you can
go to hims that’s h-i-m-s dot com and look at their full catalog of products that’s today’s
tech tip and thank you for tuning in.>>Wade: So there’s a really cool way to have
high definition pocket video magnification on the go. That’s your tech tip for this week.
