Ideal pocket size,and takes a "normal "battery. Illumination is bright,and gives a decent magnification for insects etc.
Obviously these magnifiers can not compete with proper much more expensive bench microscopes,but they have the great advantage of easy portability,and seem to be fairly robust,so ideal for outdoor use.
A good present for kids (and the not so young ) with inquisitive minds.
Package contained Microscope and basic instructions.
The Microscope has a nice premium look and feel and the focus and magnification "wheels" have a nice smooth action with just enough turning resistance (this is subject to what material the scope is placed on, smoother surface materials can cause things to move about more) and the power button and battery cover were both well constructed and nicely fitted. Overall first impressions were very positive, it is rare to receive such a well built product at such a price point.
In use the illumination led is easily bright enough and makes viewing clear and well defined. After spending half a day hunting I finally managed to capture some flies and midges for my kids to look at. At lowest Magnification details were very sharp and the structure of the midges eye, body hairs and black shiny leg claws could all be easily made out. On higher magnifications things got a little blurry due to viewing a 3D object ( not all parts of the midge was in focus at one time) but the parts that were in focus were all clear and sharp and the level of magnification was quite impressive. Flat objects were much easier to view at higher magnifications. Viewing angles are good at lower magnifications but as expected get narrower at higher magnifications. By now we have used this Microscope to view many types of insect, sugar, salt and sand grains, flakes of skin many types of leaves, various fabrics and materials, and hairs and always got really good results.
As some other reviewers have stated it can be a little difficult to focus and change magnification at times but this gets easier with use and as you get a better idea what makes a good viewing surface.
The quality of construction on this item together with its good optics mean this is a very good microscope for both young and older users and combined with its price point, provides amazing value for money.
I would highly recommend this product to other potential costumers.
The depth of focus, like any microscope is a limiting factor, but this was easily adjustable to look over the depth of things.
One negative point to consider is the stated zoom of 60-120x. I'm not sure what the actual zoom is, but there is no zoom. Rotating the zoom ring simply makes the field of view bigger or smaller but you are still looking at the same area.
Even still, for this price, my family are really enjoying this. A great one for the kids to play with without committing to real scientific kit. My 6 and 8 year olds love it, and anything to encourage science and STEM is a wonderful thing!
Not a great photo attached but this is of a 1p piece. It’s the E of Elizabeth round the edge.
I was initially put off by how light and plastic-ey it felt in my hand, but after using it for a while, the build quality is actually pretty good. All the parts join up nice and flush. The focus-wheel has a gratifyingly smooth and heavy feel, and works perfectly for the small adjustments you need.
Would buy again, maybe as a gift for someone.
