Feedback of Portable Handheld Video Magnifier Snow 7 HD

The Zoomax Snow 7 HD video magnifier features simple controls to provide both up-close and distance viewing

The Zoomax Snow 7 HD video magnifier features simple controls to provide both up-close and distance viewing.

The Zoomax Snow 7 HD is a portable video magnifier designed as a reading aid for persons who are visually impaired.

Just like desktop and handheld magnifiers, the Snow 7 can both enlarge and capture text and images and is among the lightest portable high-definition CCTVs available.

The Snow 7 display shows more words and parts of an image per screen than most portable CCTVs. Its built-in reading stand enables users to find the most comfortable position for sustained reading or writing, e.g. signing checks, filling in forms, or doing homework.
