          I use this product for failed product analysis in the field. The revolving head makes it very useful for close up inspection where you cannot lay a specimen on a slide

              Comments about Nikon 20x Field Microscope Mini:

              I just wanted to have something for occasional use indoors,which did not take up much space. It serves that purpose. It has some real shortcomings in that the field of view is quite narrow and eyeball centering must be perfect. Illumination can be had by using a battery powered booklight,or two. I mounted mine on a small desk microphone stand by adapting a mic to 1/4-20 stud. Something by Bogen will work. It focuses well,although it is pure plastic in construction. The optics are good. I would consider it a fun gift for a well regarded pre teen. Not a serious instrument. Just a fun item. It folds up very small indeed, and has a nice carry bag. Simple but fun for a youngster just starting out. Nikon should have included the stage clips, they are pre drilled for same. Accessories are just impossible to find from Nikon USA. Ambivalent? Not sure re recommend it to any adult. I may give it to pre teen granddaughter though.

              Comments about Nikon 20x Field Microscope Mini:

              I bought this one to use in the field (indoor and outdoor). Unhappily it was not of great help. Indoor it is impossible to use it without a good light source. Outdoor in the day light there is shadows caused by your head and the obliquity of sun rays reaching the field of observation so that the specimen is not well illuminated.
