Re: Help buying a microscope in Canada for electronics work

Rkagerer: I did buy few months ago a microscope (two finally) to soldering PCB's with very small components. Some of my PCb's are solder in a reflow oven, but some components are soldered by hand. For this work I need a stereo microscope. My experience so far: * Articulate stand is a must, period. *...

Re: LED Transillumination for a Nikon SMZ-2 Stereo Zoom Microscope

Hi, I have the same microscope with the same transillumination base but without lamp. I use an COB LED that works fantastic without diffuser (but better with one), I take a photograph this afternoon.

A question, how you take photographs with it? Have you any picture to see the quality? THANKS

Yes, cristal at pupil exit it's huge! I don't know field number because the eyepiece has no other marking than "10x", but yes, great scope! What are you using for take photographs? It's necessary an adapter with optics or only mount a tube adapter? Thanks

Yes, I think that the model would be in any place but nothing! Only Nikon, Japan and a serial number. Original SMZ looks the same that SMZ-2 (not exist SMZ-1? and both are the same?) and the zoom ring it's a collar between top and objetives. SM-5 has not zoom and new SMZ has the zoom as a side knob ...

Re: Nikon Stereo Microscope SZM-????

That's confuse me about this model, the eyepieces are marked only 10x then I think that are not Wide or High Eyepoint, and I expected 23.2 mm ocular in the scope and not 30mm. The old SZM (1 I think) have 30mm eyepieces or this is another model? I still not knowing which model is it exactly
