Premium performance in a compact body.
The SMZ445 and SMZ460 deliver the outstanding optical performance you expect from Nikon's cutting-edge series of stereoscopic zoom microscopes. Porro prisms enable a lightweight, compact design. With 0.8x - 3.5x zoom magnification (SMZ445) and 0.7x - 3.0x zoom magnification (SMZ460), and diascopic/episcopic LED Stand, the SMZ445 and SMZ460 let you observe a wide range of specimens, from Petri dishes to plants, insects, small animals and minerals.
Outstanding Optical Performance
High quality images with superior flatness are achieved by following the optical design and quality criteria of all Nikon's high performance stereoscopic microscope series. The multicoatings on lens surfaces provide clear, bright and high contrast images.
Long Working Distances
The long working distance of 100mm allows safe focusing even with specimens having markedly uneven surfaces. This is useful when using tweezers, dissection tools or a pipette during specimen manipulation.
Dedicated eyepiece lenses with diopter adjustments for parfocality. Combining the SMZ445 with 20x eyepiece lenses enables observation at a maximum of 70x. Rubber eyecups are available for the 10x eyepiece lenses.
Simply attaching an auxiliary objective lens achieves a wider field of view and longer working distance. Two types are available, 0.5x (WD 181mm) and 0.7x (WD 127.5mm).
The inside of the zooming body is treated with a mold-resistant finish. This maintains the quality of the lenses even in hot, humid environments.
LED Stand with All-In-One Design
The versatile LED Stand features built-in diascopic and episcopic illumination. The light intensity of each illumination can be adjusted individually, and both can be used simultaneously. The light source uses very bright LEDs. Since they have a very long life, they avoid the cost and trouble of frequent replacement. And while the base is compact and thin, it is designed to be robust for all uses.
