10X magnification, 20mm diameter lens.

This was one of many samples that manufacturers send me and, as usual, I opened it without having any expectations, they are usually sweet little toys suitable for children ('bug magnifiers' - children collect bugs); yet THIS one is quite spectacular in quality! it is from the same company that make the high quality jewellers Loupes. To get such good quality they have to stack a few lenses into the tube (each one corrects the distortions caused by the others). This is by far the best general inspection magnifier for photographs, prints, fabrics - anything flat and large.

Magnification / lens size in mm: 10X20

Maximum working distance: 10mm (the total height is 45mm but the bottom lens has a working distance of 10mm).

Origin / brand: we import these from China

Construction / presentation: glass lenses in a silver plastic tube, encased in clear acrylic. Supplied in a plain white cardboard box.

{Applications / Quality}
As general inspection magnifier, this is the absolute-best for photogrpahs (including slides and negatives), prints, fabrics, PCBs - anything flat and large. Also good for checking quantities of stamps, coins and medals before (if you are very seriously checking for forgeries) putting them under a microscope.

Not quite what you were looking for? You want a magnifier that rests on the page for reading? We have a few of these, especially designed for the partially-sighted, see our rest-on-page magnifiers

Too small? Need a stand magnifier that is larger, with space to work under? See our large stand magnifiers (bench magnifiers).

Not good enough?! Need a microscope? click here.

Almost right, but you DO need something considerably more powerful (a large single lens is ALWAYS low-power), AND it must still give stereo vision. Try the type of head-worn magnifier surgeons use. click here. These are good for watch repairing or for work on micro-circuits.
