CANDY 5 HD II is a handheld (with handle) 5.0″ LCD HD video magnifier with a unique, ergonomic 3-position handle that can be comfortably held in the center-balanced position, for right-handed or left-handed use. Alternatively, use CANDY 5 HD as a Stand magnifier by pulling out the folded leg and CANDY 5 HD II operates similar to an optical stand magnifier.


5” LCD Close-up and Near-distance Video Magnifier with Three-position Handle, Self View Image Mode and Long-lasting Rechargeable Battery

The new CANDY 5 HD II features a 5” high-definition wide-screen LCD and continuous zoom magnification from 2.5x – 22x. This versatile video magnifier has an intuitive center-position HD autofocus camera and can be used as either a “handheld” or “stand” magnifier. Use CANDY 5 HD II at home or take it with you to school, work, restaurant, pharmacy, bank, library, grocery or department store or on vacation.

    We bought one of these for my mother in-law and weren’t sure she would really use it since she’s not very comfortable with a lot of electronics and things but we were so wrong. Immediately she started looking through an old photo album and cards from the kids. It was so nice to see her face light up when she was able to see those things again.
