Nikon Stereomicroscope SMZ800N

Affordable Nikon Stereo Microscope model with 8:1 zoom ratio, streamlined operation and basic performance.

Versatile stereo microscope with improved operability and basic performance.

Nikon Stereo Microscope 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.

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.

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.
