Casio has been working with dermatologists and plastic surgeons since 2015 to develop and provide doctors' learning services and equipment through medical-engineering collaboration. The DZ-S50 has been developed based on the needs of the dermatologists and the accumulated data. One example is the use of a large-diameter lens with a diameter of 40.5 mm to observe the affected area over a wide area, and one-touch switching between polarized and non-polarized light to make it easier to examine the affected area.
The body size is W67.5 x H140.2 x D23.1mm, weighs about 125g, and is light and portable and finished in a size and weight. It has an LED light that illuminates the affected area, with 6 lights for polarized light and 3 lights for non-polarized light. The power supply is a built-in battery, and the continuous lighting time of the LED light is about 120 minutes.
