Examine grocery labels, restaurant menus and more with the handheld Pico video magnifier. View objects in full colour, positive text (black on white), negative text (white-on-black) or yellow on blue modes. Convenience is at your fingertips with Pico.

Pico's Features:

 Display: Color LCD - 4" (10.6cm) diagonal
 Magnification: 3X - 11X
 Dimensions: Length: 6.5", Width: 3.5" , Height: 1.1"
     (16.5cm x 8.9cm x 2.5cm)
 Weight: 10 ounces (.28 kg)

Pico's folding legs:

  • Legs folded/ Hand held - Read brief materials (i.e. price tags or receipts) or curved surfaces by holding Pico approximately 1 inch above the material.  You can adjust the magnification from 3X to 11X by increasing or decreasing the distance between Pico and the material.
  • Using both legs - Set Pico up on both legs for magnification of 5X. You can also sign checks and write notes. Try turning Pico vertically for more space to write.
  • Top leg unfolded - Unfold the top leg, and turn Pico so that the buttons are away from you for magnification up to 11X.
  • Bottom leg unfolded - Read with ease, unfold the bottom leg and rotate the Pico with the buttons towards you. Place Pico on the reading material, tilting the screen towards you. In this position the magnification is 8X.

Adjusting Illumination: Three illumination options:

  • Full light - normal setting for reading print material and writing.
  • Low light - reduces glare from glossy material.
  • Light off - use to reduce glare when reading glossy material or to read a computer screen. The image quality when using this mode to read paper is dependent on ambient light.

Rechargeable Battery:
  • Approximate Use time: 1.25 hours; Charge time: 2 hours
  • Convenient Power Source: Charge Pico with a standard AC adapter power setup. This streamlined arrangement is similar to that of a laptop computer
