The Nikon EZ-Micro allows users to observe microscopic objects with a 20x (fixed lens)
while simultaneously photographing them with one of the 16 compatible Nikon
COOLPIX digital cameras. Illuminated by two white LED lights with a 3-step power
switch, the Nikon EZ-Micro has a close focus distance of 1.5 inches above the base of the
stage, a real field of view of 11 diameters and a wide interpupillary distance adjustment
of 51mm to 72mm. The entire optical system produces an erect, unreversed image, with
the eyepiece diopter separately adjustable.
The EZ-Micro is compatible with any of the following COOLPIX camera and Fieldscope
digital camera bracket combinations: COOLPIX S1, S3, S5, S6, S7, S7c, S8, S9 + FSB-5,
COOLPIX P3/P4 + FSB-4, COOLPIX P1/P2 + FSB-3, COOLPIX 5600 + FSB-2 or the
COOLPIX 4200, 5200, 7900 + FSB-1A. Magnification varies depending on the camera
used. For example, when the COOLPIX P3 or P4 is connected, the widest-angle setting
is approximately 20x with a maximum telescopic setting of approximately 70x. These
same camera/bracket combinations can also be used with any Nikon Fieldscope and
