Digital microscopes are being automated and computerized to make them easier to use, display more data with more detail and precision, and expand their areas of application. With traditional microscopes, you need years of experience in order to take full advantage of the instrument. Digital microscopes can reduce the learning period by automatically selecting many of the settings to optimize an image. They can focus, zoom, polarize light, move filters in and out, and utilize tools like differential interference contrast (DIC) prisms.
