    I have a Bausch & Lomb StereoZoom 4 which I use for retouching negatives because you can see depth where the brush is going...

    Thanks for giving me a great idea tkamiya... This weekend I have plans to do some printing... I can mount up that microscope over my light table and "proof" my negatives for sharpness before committing them to paper.

    A stereo microscope has two lenses (and two eyepieces), giving two perspectives (of 3D matter). A binocular microscope has just one lens, but two eypieces, facilitating viewing (of plain matter).

    No, stereo microscope, ie. dissection microscope.... obviously, it being a stereo has no merit in this application.... but a microscope of this type has a wilder field of view and lower magnifications than a regular (compound) microscope. Mine goes down to 10x. It also have a larger transmitting type light source, which is basically a dedicated light box. I also happen to have one handy....

    I have an Indian made scope. It's QUITE handy for many things....

    Mine looks like one on this link:

    I have a CZM4 which is 10x to 40x version. There are many less costly choices Ebay and Amazon, and everywhere else.

    The B&L has two lenses - true stereo. I waited and got a good deal on mine, the prices today seem unrealistic.

    This is very similar to what I have, except mine is made out of wood.

    Or:

    YOu can just open up a Word page with no text, make it full screen and stick you negs up to your monitor in a plastic sleeve page. That works real well.

    I recommend something like a Carson MV-820 that is both an 8X loupe as well as a 40X microscope.





    Of course if you have a bellows setup + slide copier that works too . . .





    For scrutinizing the frame of film down to the grain, then you may have to resort to a microscope setup . . .

    I use clear negative pages, 8x loupe and light table or box. I use multi-element wide-field 8x Kenko loupe like this: Click image for larger version.

    Yep, a dissecting microscope is a very handy thing. If you're patient you can sometimes find them very cheaply.

    Yes, I think I took 3 months waiting and checking the bay ... and I got a very good deal but risked getting garbage by taking the very ugliest... Only needed some scrubbing up, the optics needed a little adjusting. But it turned out I got lucky and then I used an old enlarger column to mount it.
