    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:
    - Very small indeed............................................. - Good magnification from upclose. - easy to carry. However when put in your pocket or purse I would advise a little pouch or a piece of cloth to protect the magnifier from scratches and dirt.
    Cons:
    - You must be very close to the object you want to observe to see anything. Not adviseble for working with heat or powertools!!...

    Pretty good

    posted by cmagnoletes on 10/04/2012 Certified Owner

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:
    Pretty good plastic, looks resistant and it does what's supposed to do. And you can actually use your camera on the things you zoom in. Very cool.
    Cons:
    A little bit distorted, but nothing very serious. You have to look very close to it to get a good image.

    A truly flawless magnifier

    posted by Impossiburu on 05/20/2012 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:
    Very, VERY cost effective. This is not only tremendously cheap but also does the job perfectly. Provides excellent magnification and is big enough to use in large and small objects alike. Although the build quality isn't perfect, it's far from bad. I use it...
    Cons:
    Slight chromatic aberrations near the edges - this is to be expected, though.

    It's funny to see small things or some insects. Spanish: Es divertido ver cosas pequeñas o algunos insectos
    Cons:
    Very little! I thought it'll be bigger! I have broke a little my Magnifier, but the quality is very good. It's very expensive...

    Good tool for stamp collector

    posted by junkai21 on 04/14/2010 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:less than 1 day

    Pros:
    Good to have for people who likes to see things in detail. Like me! I love macro photography. I bought this item out of curiousity. Put it on your eye and the bottom on the item you wish to zoom, you will see the item in 10x size. I love looking at coins ...
    Cons:
    - Nothing actually... Just that you need to be in a well lit room - Box came wrecked (Nevermind, i throw it off anyway)

    Great for ground glass focusing on LF cameras

    posted by plasmat on 10/20/2009 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:
    Bought this item for one purpose only - to be able to better focus my large format (LF) field camera. I just put it on the ground glass and adjust my focus. A cheap item, does what it says. Ok construction (I wouldn't say solid, but not flimsy either. Well...
    Cons:
    The only issue (not for me though) is a narrow field of view. You can see the object in the centre magnified, the rest is a bit...

    Too good for it's own good

    posted by aurispector on 06/23/2009 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:
    Powerful optic and shatter resistant plastic, together at last. But not really in a good way.
    Cons:
    Small distorted focal area surrounded by funhouse blur. Not really useful due to excess image distortion.

    Very good product

    posted by skeptikaltruth on 04/14/2009 Certified Owner

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:
    This is basically a jeweler's loupe. It's used to magnify small spots or allow you to be able to concentrate on small spots when sodering, wiring or building tiny things. You can use this magnifier by squinting your eye a bit so that your eyelids will grasp...
    Cons:
    A lot smaller than I expected. My father's legally blind and uses a loupe in order to read but this is way too small.
