Nikon SMZ1270i-test

Best-In-Class Zoom Ratio

With a zoom ratio of 12.7x (0.63x-8x), the SMZ1270i covers a greater magnification range than previous models. At the lowest magnification, the field of view reaches 35mm*, allowing observation of a 35mm petri dish.
* when using 1x objective and 10x eyepieces, excluding Coaxial EPI illumination

Optimized ObjectivesQuality Images

The new WF series objectives offer a wide, uniformly bright viewfield—even at low magnifications. Aquire clear images with reduced chromatic aberrations throughout the extended zoom range through the new Plan Apo WF and ED Plan WF objectives. 

Versatile Double Nosepiece

The versatile double nosepiece allows for seamless observation in a wide range of magnifications. 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.

Improved Ergonomics

With an ergonomic eyepiece tube, the observation angle can adjust from 0-30 degrees, allowing for comfortable observation postures even if combined with intermediate modules such as illuminators or teaching heads.

Advanced Digital Imaging

Combine the DS-L3 Camera Control Unit, NIS-Elements software and P-RN2 Intelligent Nosepiece for more efficient image acquisition; the objective magnification and zoom ratio information is displayed on the monitor. 

Slim LED Base Design 

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