Not sure which type of microscope is best?      

High power microscopes go to 400x and beyond and are used to look at specimens you can not view with the naked eye. Samples are placed on microscope slides and covered on top with a "cover slip."

High power microscopes are more popular as gifts than low power microscopes as there are more activities and investigations that can be done with them. Our two most popular (high power) models sold as gifts are the F1 Kids Microscope and the HS-1M High School Microscope.

If you want to look at larger items (greater than 2 mm) such as a whole insect, coins, stamps, gems minerals or sand grains then you should look at the low power microscopes. Our two most popular low power microscopes are the S2-BL stereo microscope and the S6 Stereo Zoom Microscope

Digital microscopes perform the same functions, but also include a camera (in some cases a tablet) and software. You can connect the microscope to the computer to view a live image on your screen, as well as capture and save images and video! Recommend high power digital models are the HS-1D digital high school microscope and the HS-2D digital 1000x student microscope. Low power digital microscopes we recommend as gifts are the S6-LCD Stereo Zoom microscope and the S2D-SPS dual power digital stereo microscope.
