I used it for looking at mineral specimens, I balanced the battery cover on something solid, and tilt the microscope at a 45 deg angle, to get a steady focus, when you take the picture hold the pic button for 4 seconds and it takes the pic,no need to click the button, reduces the shakiness.
Battery cover, push down when sliding and stop after a 1/4" or yes it might break off, (Poor design) the battery markings are missing on mine.
To change the menu and shut off time, hit the M button then the down button while on picture mode,that brings up the menu. Read the instructions as there are several settings you can change. I put my pics on a SD card that fits in the unit, they are really clear on my screen, don't go by the little screen, (It doesn't do it justice) Here's a pic of some gold on quartz, and a Topaz I thought was a rough diamond (Wife says "Nope")
One more thing I noticed, on the quartz sample, it's appx 1.5" x 2" piece, the gold follows the vein down the face, the microscope will only focus on a flat plane, no depth of field, so everything past the surface will be fuzzy.
After I taped the door closed, I proceeded to turn on the unit and setup operations to my like. All the functions appeared to operate as published and the video and still images are fairly good. The case is built a bit cheap and I feel it it were handle in any rough manner it could break. The LCD quality was good also, better than I have seen in this size before on other products. All in all, If you don't have a problem re-engineering the plastic battery cover to actually work well then the unit may serve its purpose. Would I buy another one? Probably not.
