Is it a simple Magnifier or is it an Inspection Loupe?
I guess that technically they are all General Inspection Loupes since we use them to inspect stuff; but the description can best be determined by what you use it for. That said, yes, indeed, some of our Magnifiers could be called Inspection Loupes. But as always, a picture is worth a whole bunch of definitions.
This 3-lens configuration at 10x folds right into its 10mm case. The neutral color tone of the lenses is essential for gem and other precision inspection tasks.
MIZAR FIVEFOLD can be found in the Tokyo Metropolitan Police toolchest. Enough said?
It is configured into 2 groups of 5 lens elements to give bright, clear images. The Fivefold features 18x magnification and is 18mm in size.
This is another popular MIZAR triplet in a slightly larger configuration at 21mm and 10x power.
