By expanding the magnification to an 8:1 zoom ratio (1x-8x), the SMZ800N provides ease of use alongside a high definition image essential for electronic component inspection and failure analysis tasks.

Incredible Image Sharpness throughout the Wide Magnification Range

Ideal for failure analysis studies, defining modes of failure then verifying solutions. Component surface examination, crack-detection, corrosion studies, composite materials, textiles, parts produced by machine tools for critical aerospace components or building and construction materials are all carried out easily.


Nikon SMZ800N

A microscope suiting materials science and industry. For desktop or machine integration. QA functions possible for routine and critical applications.

Best-in-Class 8:1 Optical Zoom Ratio

With a best-in-class optical zoom ratio of 8:1 (1x-8x), the SMZ800N exceeds the magnification range available from previous models.

Product Highlight

Best-in-Class 8:1 Optical Zoom

Thanks to the large field of view, the component or sample does not need to be disturbed when scanning a larger area at high magnifications.

High Quality Images

Amazingly clear, bright images with minimal chromatic aberration throughout the extended zoom range due to exceptional “Plan Apo WF” and “ED plan WF” objective lenses.

Wide Range of Accessories

The wide range of accessory component features available for Nikon’s research stereo microscope models are also available for the SMZ800N including Nikon’s Digital Sight Cameras.

Ergonomic in-use Design Concept

Ergonomic advantages follow from the design of function controls and operator posture. Positioning of operator’s controls and variable angle observation tubes allows comfortable fatigue-free work.
