Using ProScope HR Software

Once installed, ProScope HR software basically works like the LCD screen on your digital camera. The main viewscreen displays what the ProScope HR ‘sees’ in real time until you’re ready to capture the image or video. This is called live mode. Images and video can be captured two ways:

1. Depressing the large white button on the ProScope HR itself.
2. Click the red capture button on the upper right side of the main window.

After an image or video clip has been captured, the image can be previewed by clicking the thumbnails below the main window. This is called preview mode. To return to live mode, click the main window.

There are three capture modes in which to shoot your subject:

  1. Still Image - located at the top-left of the main window. Use this setting when you want to take still images, not video. You can capture images in three resolutions. Click the bar to activate.
  2. Video - located at the top-center of the main window. Use this setting when you want to record video. You can record video in three resolutions. Click the bar to activate.
  3. Time Lapse - located at the top-right of the main window. Use this setting when you want to record subjects in time lapse.

Focusin ProScope step 1For 30N and 50x lenses, turn the lens cone counter-clockwise until it stops. The lens cone is now fully extended and in touch view
position. Simply touch the object to the end of the lens cone.

focusing ProScope step 2Turning the cone clockwise until it stops will fully retract it. The lens cone is now in distance view position. The focal distance is approx. 1/2-inch from the cone end. Use this mode if you do not want to touch the lens cone to your subject.

focusing ProScope step 3The 1/10x lens only works at a distance and can be adjusted in focus and magnification from 0x to 10x by turning the cone.

focusing ProScope step 4The 100x, 200x and 400x lenses can be adjusted from touch view to distance view by turning the the forward part of the lens cone. Unlike the 30N or 50x lens, there is not an exact cone position for touch or distance view.
