10X magnification, 20mm diameter lens.
This was one of many samples that manufacturers send me, they are usually sweet little toys suitable for children (e.g. 'bug magnifiers'). I was in for a surprise!
THIS one is quite spectacular in quality! It is from the same company that make the high quality jeweller's Loupes, and they've used a 'triplet' lens to get the best quality. This is by far the best general inspection magnifier (on a stand) for photographs, prints, fabrics, stamps, coins, pcbs (anything flat).
