Zoom Stereomicroscope

Versatile stereo microscope with improved operability and basic performance.

The SMZ800N offers higher magnification than conventional models, enabling high-resolution observation of minute structures. In combination with the new objective series, its improved chromatic aberration correction provides bright and sharp images through the entire viewfield. The parallel optics design allows ergonomic accessories and observation attachments to be used in a wide range of applications.

Key Features

Superior basic performance

The SMZ800N comes with a wide zoom ratio of 8:1 (1 - 8x zoom range) and enables high resolution observation of 640LP/mm (using ED Plan Apo 2x/WF at maximum zoom) with its high-NA optics. Semi-Apochromat optics have been adopted for the lenses in the SMZ800N zoom body to achieve chromatic aberration correction throughout the viewfield.

Diverse lineup of objectives

A wide selection of newly developed objectives with various magnifications and working distances are available for the SMZ800N. These include high-NA, high-resolution and wide-viewfield Plan Apo WF series objectives with superior image flatness and chromatic aberration correction. In addition, a 0.75x objective is now available, expanding the lineup of low magnification objectives.


On-axis observation with the nosepiece

The double nosepiece offers easy on-axis imaging, enabling observation of the bottom of holes, accurate simple measurement and extended depth-of-focus (EDF) imaging without distortion.

Ergonomic design

Eyepiece tubes with a range of inclination angles are available for comfortable observation. They offer the optimum eyelevel for each user. In addition, slim-type plain stands and the LED Diascopic Illumination Stand easily facilitate the presentation and removal of specimens.

Observation posture

With the LED Diascopic Illumination Stand and Fiber Diascopic Illumination Stand, focus control during observation is possible using the dial in front of the base.


Expandable with a wide range of accessories

In addition to basic optional accessories, the same high level of accessories used with superior models are also available for this model. These include trinocular tubes and slim-type LED diascopic illumination stands. These allow various microscope configurations to suit numerous routine inspections and a range of research and development applications.
