nheather Posted December 23, 2022 Share Posted December 23, 2022 I use an Optivisor, couldn’t be without it, tried alternatives, other magnifiers, spectacles, but always come back to the OptiVisor. But here is the question. I have DA-5 (2.5X) lens and I firmly believe this is the sweet spot for compromise of magnification and focal distance. But from time to time I fancy a little more magnification, like belt buckles on miniature figures, so I keep looking at the DA-10 (3.5X) but I’ve been put off but the very short focal distance. The DA-10 has a focal distance of 4” (10cm) and I imagine that the depth of field will be very shallow - so I wonder whether it will bring the figure that I am painting into fantastic clear magnified view but will be so close that I can’t get the paintbrush in to use it. Son interested if anyone here uses a 3.5X Optivisor or similar and if so what do you think? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
