Very nice but with little weaknesses – 10X Texture Close-up Magnifier Reviews

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

Pros:
- Low priced - Quite good build quality - Construction of transparent plastic allows enough light to pass in
Cons:
- Lens is unsharp if looking away from the center - Partially very distorting
Other:
As a media designer I know how useful these little helpers can be. And this is really a fine one. The price is really low and the overall build quality is quite good. When looking away from the center you will soon have "problems" with distortions and sharpness, but´s a problem all low-priced versions have in common. If you would spend $50 or more on a "good one", you´ll possibly have no distortions but you really can live with it. The sharpness is absolutely ok in the center, and that´s the important area. It becomes more and more blurry when going to the edges but that should be no problem...
Bottomline:
Buy it! You simply can´t get a better one for a better price...
