I have high 5 figures invested into a home soldering lab. I use a
digital video scope now, however for 5-6 years before that, I used this
scope nearly every day for mostly 0402/.5 mm pitch soldering and repair:
Along with these eye pieces:
The combination with swing arm allows me to move the scope anywhere on
my work bench and gives a use-able work height of up to 18 inches
I highly recommend it.
P.S. Disregard the camera. I thought it would be useful when I bought
it, but never once used it.
