DEFINITION OF MICROSCOPE MAGNIFICATION

The definition of microscope magnification is quite simple.
For eg: If the observed object (1mm) is displayed on the PC monitor or PC to 10mm, the magnification will be 10 times

Caculation:

General magnification = monitor magnification x optical magnification (lens scale)

Monitor magnification = monitor size (inch) x 25.4mm/flange distance

Flange distance 6mm (1/3” camera), 7mm (1/2.5” camera), 8mm (1/2” camera) (Please refer to [Image size of camera] for more information)

The magnification of the lens was calculated value when it was attached to our 1/2 inch camera (variable magnification lens for coaxial lighting SDS-FZ)  and observed with a 17-inch monitor.

Monitor magnification = (17×25.4)/8 = 54

General magnification = 54×4 = 216 times

By combining camera to auxiliary lens, ring lens, conveter lens, objective lens, …, the magnification will be increased.

The magnification of the lens was calculated value when it was attached to our 1/2 inch camera (Standard variable magnification lens SDS-M) and observed with a 17-inch monitor.

Monitor magnification = (17×25.4)/8 = 54

General magnification = 54x4x0.5 (lens magnification) = 108 times

■ How to show filed of view of storaged images?

The magnification of the microscope has a lot of parameters, it becomes complicated when writing reports.

Therefore, please keep the calibration value instead of magnification that shown in the right picture.

Then you can determine the approximate field of view of the image.
