Still on the topic of VFM but back in the stamp world ... check this 200 x digital microscope out from Maplins at £19.99. Save £20 (was £39.99). Offer only on until 25/1/11 or until stocks exhausted.

Unfortunately I have already spent upwards of £70 on the SG version - otherwise I would be rushing to my nearest outlet.

I too have the SG microscope. My only gripe is that is was designed to view mounted samples on slides (as it comes with a few and a cheap pair of tweezers). It would have been of more philatelic value if the stand would support the microscope over a machin stamp to give the user more 'hands-free' capability.

I had a SG Zoom which went back as I could not get the snap shot function to work, I was told off a technical guy that my USB port was to blame so buyers beware. I have the 400 Maplins now and it is extremely good value, but take care when handling it don't let it fall hard as it can be damaged easily as it happened to me but as it was in the guarantee they replaced it without any hassle.

I must be a jinx!!!!!

We have a discussion of digital microscopes on the Stamporama website under general discussions;

Some excellent scans one collector posted showing some of the advantages that a Machin flyspecker would get.

The comment is five years old Charles so it is not surprising that that item is no longer available from this seller.
