This multifunctionality binocular with a continual zoom magnification (from 0.8x to 10x) is appropriate for object of about 100 µm to a few mm. It can be used in transmission, epi-illumination and dark field mode. For the epi-illumination one can choose between two light spots or an annular light source (less shadow).
