Swift M3-B overview

  • 1Description

The Swift M3-B Binocular Micro, Macro, & Field Microscope combines 3 microscopes in one. The microscope allows you to view both microscopic specimens, by using the compound objectives (4X, 10X, 40X) and macroscopic specimens, by using the 1X macro objective. The M3-B has an 18mm W10XD eyepiece and is cordless, using energy efficient, rechargeable LED illumination from both the top and bottom.

The Swift M3-B is small and compact so it is ideal for both classroom and field work. Because the way the objectives are configured, it achieves a magnification range of 20X-400X. Switching from compound to macro use is easy by changing the objectives and adjusting the stage positions. All metal construction makes it durable for use in any environment. The unique tripod base keeps it sturdy even on rugged outdoor surfaces.

    Swift M3-B reviews

    M3-B Binocular Micro, Macro, & Field Microscope is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 2.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent for field research and study! This is an excellent microscope for anyone interested in bringing microscopy to the field. The body is solid and rather heavy, but gives a quality feel. The adjustment wheels do not have any slack, and it is flexible enough in use for you to cheat a little - you can use the stereoscope and microscope modes with lighting from underneath or from above. The light really is excellent and the rechargeable battery has enough juice when freshly charged to last for many long days in the field without weakening noteceably. It mounts on an ordinary tripod. My only regret is that it is not able to magnify 1000X, so such things as identification of fungi based on the shapes of spores are difficult. If you are looking for an easy-to-use microscope and primarily want to use it at home, this is not your best option. That being said I am happy with the trade-offs between portability and ease of use. This is an excellent product.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great scope for the field We use this microscope to examine aquatic organisms in the field. This is a sturdy, well built, field ready scope that works well in both the macro and micro realm. We wish the light was brighter and that it could be operated in top lit, bottom lit or both in all configurations
