How many diopters does the magnifying lamp have?
The magnification – the power with which the object is magnified – of the LED light magnifier is always indicated in diopters. This unit of measurement thus plays a decisive role when you want to buy yourself a magnifying lamp. In general, with regard to magnification, we differentiate between the following models:
- 3 diopters – this corresponds to a magnification of 1.75x (175%)
- 5 diopters – this corresponds to a magnification of 2.25x (225%)
- 8 diopters – this corresponds to a magnification of 2.75x (275%)
In general, we find that a lamp with 3 diopters is totally sufficient for many uses because the magnification appears relatively powerful. You get a virtually undistorted image over almost the entire lens area. This lens also has a particularly high depth of field. If you want to observe small things optimally in a cut-out, then you are well served with a 5-diopter light magnifier. Lamps with 8 diopters are necessary above all in the field of model making. Because it is a question here of magnifying very small objects as much as possible. If you are looking for a work lamp, a lamp with 3 diopters is therefore completely sufficient. This also applies to most crafts and DIY jobs.
