The 3x Magnifier for 6 x 7 from Schneider features a large viewing field of 7 x 7cm offering excellent edge to edge sharpness with absolutely no distortion. This Schneider magnifier has been redesigned to provide an accurate image over a larger eye-to-loupe distance range. The unit comes with two interchangeable skirts. The clear one is for roll film while the opaque one is for larger slides. The neck strap assembly has been redesigned as well in order to provide a stronger, more secure attachment.

Ideal for checking large format films
Focusing is now free from cord twisting and the base is specially designed to prevent damage to negatives and slides
High contrast and lack of flare also make Schneider loupes perfect for focusing on the ground glass of large-format cameras

              Comments about Schneider 3x Magnifier for 6 x 7:

              I purchased both the 3x (7cm x 7cm), and the 4x (35mm) loupes. I needed a loupe that had superb optics, is distortion free, and could be focused. I wear +2.0 reading glasses, so a comfortable eyeglass to viewing lens distance would be needed. A bonus would be if I could use these loupes without my reading glasses. I would be using these loupes to evaluate only slides and negatives on a light table, and not to evaluate prints.

              When I first used these loupes, I was truly amazed at the images. I first tried the loupes with my reading glasses, and there was no eyestrain. The loupes have a large diameter lens, so it is not necessary to put your glasses against the loupe, thanks to the greater eye to lens distance of these loupes. I then removed my reading glasses, and was glad to see that I could focus dead on without the glasses, so no need for my reading glasses with these loupes.

              Both loupes have outstanding optics, are distortion free, sharp edge to edge, resolve beautifully, and present a bright image. The 4x loupe covers the entire 35mm frame, and the 3x loupe covers 7cm x 7cm (I use it to evaluate 6x6 images though). There is enough friction on the focus to prevent wobble, and the focus remains accurate from slide to slide. Each of these loupes came packaged in a cardboard cylinder with foam interiors and end caps to prevent damage. I will not be using the clear skirt, nor the neck strap, so I offer no opinion on these. These loupes have exceeded my expectations.

                I use this to view medium format film on a light box and also to focus on a 4x5 camera ground glass. It works great for both. It covers the full 6x7 frame without distortion. It is durable despite the plastic body (the lens is glass).

                    I use this magnifier for 6x17cm panoramic negatives. The Schneider glass is as good as the Schneider glass in my rolleiflexes and linhofs. No, the body of the magnifier is not steel, as the three times more expensive Rollei 3x magnifier is, so I took the glass and will let the steel pass, this time.

                          This magnifier is impeccably sharp with excellent contrast and lives up to the Schneider name for quality. I got it for viewing the Hasselblad XPan negatives and slides, which are nearly 7 cm wide, which makes this loupe perfect. The neck strap broke off just by putting the loupe back in the box. I don't mind this since I never use one anyway, but is a quirky part of an otherwise great product. It's also the perfect size to view the LCD screen on my Canon 5D MKII, although I don't use it for that purpose much.

                            I use this for looking at negatives and chromes on a light box. I also use it to look at prints with the translucent base. That does not snap onto the rest of the housing positively, which is annoying given the price. Optically, it is sharp and bright edge to edge.

                              I use this loupe to view my shots on the LCD on the back of my Nikon D3. I used a smaller Schneider 4x for my Canon MkII.

                              The first problem is that the rubber neck strap came unglued from just picking it up! I reglued it and within three days cracks developed in the rubber strap, (it is about 1/8 inch and round, very small) I drilled out the rubber from the metal and glued in a shoe lace. Works fine now. I think companies sometimes make something with little or no field use before it goes out to the public.
