Benefits & features

Best-in-class zoom ratio

With a best-in-class zoom ratio of 12.7x (0.63x-8x), the SMZ1270i covers an even greater magnification range than previous models. At the lowest magnification, the actual field of view will go up to 35mm*, allowing easy observation of an entire 35mm petri dish.
* when 1x objective and 10x eyepieces are used (excluding Coaxial EPI illumination)

High quality images

Amazingly clear and bright images with reduced chromatic aberrations can be acquired throughout the extended zoom range through the newly developed “Plan Apo WF” and “ED plan WF” objectives.

nikon metrology industrial microscopes stereo objectives SMZNew objectives optimized for widefield observation at low magnification

In combination with the newly developed WF series objectives, the SMZ1270i offers a wide and uniformly bright view field even at low magnifications. In addition, a 0.75x objective is now available, expanding the lineup of low magnification objectives.

Versatile double nosepiece

The double nosepiece allows for seamless observation in a wide range of magnifications. In addition, changing objectives has never been easier.

By changing the nosepiece from stereo-position (stereo view) to mono-position (on-axis view), you can easily acquire images suited for measuring and processing.

There are several eyepiece tubes to fit various configurations, from a simple setup to a system with some intermediate modules or digital cameras. With an ergonomic eyepiece tube, the observation angle can be adjusted from 0-30 degrees, allowing for comfortable observation postures even if combined with intermediate modules like illuminators or teaching heads.  Furthermore, the Plain Stands and Diascopic LED Stands adapted a slim design for easier operation and exchange of specimens and samples.


Advanced digital imaging capabilities

In combination with the DS-L3 Camera Control Unit, NIS-Elements imaging software, and P-RN2 Intelligent Nosepiece, image acquisition is now more efficient, with the objective magnification and zoom ratio information displayed on the monitor.

Expandable with a wide range of accessories

To support a variety of observation methods and applications used for research and inspection, an assortment of accessories, such as illumination units, stands, and eyepiece tubes, are available. By incorporating a “Fly Eye Lens” with the Epi-Fluorescence illuminator, uniform brightness over the entire field of view is realized, which helps in observing specimen that needs a wide magnification range. Nikon also offers several digital cameras ideally suited to different stereo microscope applications.

Diascopic illumination stands have been renewed. The slim LED base design provides easy access to specimen and easy operation. As with the SMZ25 and SMZ18, the diascopic illumination base features Nikon’s very own oblique illumination, the OCC illuminator. The built-in feature offers high contrast observation for transparent samples such as oocytes used in the IVF application.
