The Explore 8 is a touchscreen portable magnifier that is ideal for anyone with vision loss who needs an electronic reading aid for magnifying documents.

The 8.0-inch screen and compact design make this portable digital video magnifier the easiest to transport and use everywhere.

Explore 8

Lightweight and powerful, the Explore 8 is ideal for active people looking for a large screen and optimal portability to maintain their lifestyle. This magnifier features two 21-megapixel cameras: one for document reading at 15 cm (or less), and a second to see clearly at distances for things like street and store signs. You can also save your favorite images and view them on a large TV screen.

The Explore 8 boasts the largest screen in the smallest package. Although smaller, lighter, and more affordable than most 7-inch magnifiers, it provides a screen more than 30% larger that also delivers unmatched image quality. With its superior ergonomics and long-distance viewing, Explore 8 has the power to help you indoors and out.
