Quote from: Bad Raven on March 12, 2016, 22:04:26 pm<snip>What I have now also done to my Quanums is to replace the fresnel lens with proper shaped lenses from a head magnifying unit. It was an easy enough conversion and now the clarity, already better than anything else tried, is even better yet. The unit I bought was less than £10 and came with several different really nicely transparent clip in lenses in a box. I have managed to fit these with their clip in holder into the fresnel lens frame. After one false dawn choosing lens that seemed to work OK (while operating short range indoors), but gave a double "fringed" image outdoors.<more snip>
Quote from: Bad Raven on March 13, 2016, 12:32:59 pmHi Graham,Do a search on EBay for " HEAD TORCH MAGNIFIER LENS WITH LIGHT WATCH JEWELLERY REPAIRS NEW HANDS FREE "I paid £8.95 last week. I have modded it into the Quanum such that lens can be swung up and swapped AND I can still use the mag headpiece with the other three lens, so its not even wasted that!Flown this morning after changing the lens, it is much clearer than the fresnel. I'm using the 1.8x lens in the Quanum fitted into the Fresnel frame (without mods) with it at the nearest to eye setting of the std slot. The 1.2 gave some double imaging. 1.2, 1.8. 2.5, and 3.5x are provided.
Quote from: Bad Raven on March 13, 2016, 17:07:05 pm The unit comes with two clip in lens swing fittings which pivot on a single holder piece screwed in with two self tappers . I razor sawed this part to leave as much of the screw section on ONE pivot half. This went back on the mag headpiece, so a single lens still fits and swings as designed. The other clip in swing piece is fitted into the sawn off part and that part is taped to the fresnel lens frame. Done correctly the lower points of the lens fit into the lower fresnel frame groove and stays put, but can be unclipped by springing the frame and lifted up and out for changing or cleaning.Having done this I found that my quads camera needed a lens focus adjustment which made the image even better, there was no way to tell it was out before!!
