I gave the product 4 stars for the following two reasons. 1. I am not using the loupe for its intended purpose and would like to have been able to see the detail I want holding it at least 30 mm from the object and not 15 mm as is the case. Had I known this, I probably wouldn't have ordered it -- my fault there as I should have done more investigation. 2. I don't buy much over the internet but the shipping charges seem high. Now having said that, the loupe arrived earlier than I expected and it was well packaged. Ordering was easy, I was kept informed (always nice) and there was follow up. The quality of the loupe looks good. So, would I ever order again from Indigo? Taking the shipping charges out of the equation, most definitely. Given a choice though between dealing with Amazon and dealing with Indigo, I would go with Indigo based on this purchase even with the high shipping cost.
Thanks for the feedback. The higher the magnification, the shorter the focal length; i.e. the closer you have to be. Unfortunately the physics of optics dictates this. We hope to do a blog about this to explain in greater detail. See Phone Camera Loupe “Dissecting Microscope”. In this case a 10X magnifier was used at roughly 30mm & the phone camera boosted the magnification. We appreciate the freight issue & we charge it at cost. Where we come out on top is when you buy two or three at a time. Having said that, we appreciate the vote of confidence over buying from Amazon.
Another great year of working with Indigo. Always a great product that is on the list of preferred promotional items to give to customers. Indigo provides a great product at a great price and excellent service and communication. 10 stars!
Thanks. You've been a great customer for longer than we can remember, 10 years at least. Glad we've been able to help.
