Too good for it's own good – 15X Close-up Map Magnifier Reviews

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.
Other:
I have several of the 10 x version and they work better for my purposes. It may be possible to use one of these as a sort of insect hell-hole in which you capture bugs under the base and use sunlight to make them sizzle. If you like doing that sort of thing you sick, depraved bastard.
Bottomline:
Just get the 10x version. The image isn't as distorted and if you need more magnification you can just lift it off the table and the image gets larger. I actually use the 10x every day at work. Really. I'm not kidding. I promise that's true. Honest.
