  • "I have to admit that I’m not always too keen on what they like to call ‘embracing new technology’ ...However, now and again something comes along that I feel I just have to have" - Hugh Jefferies, Stanley Gibbons Catalogue Editor.

    The presence or absence of phosphor can be a significant feature in assessing the value of a stamp, so having a lamp of your own and knowing how to use it can be a valuable asset in building up a good collection.

    There are a number of lamps on the market, but, to be honest, none that we would be prepared to put the Stanley Gibbons name on – so we set about developing one ourselves. To do that we looked at what was wrong with all the others and tried to right those wrongs.

    "Terrific...I was able to find the phosphor number of FH14 which I had not found with a standard mains UV lamp. The new SG UV lamp has paid for itself in finding one booklet alone catalogued more than the purchase cost in going through booklets that I had catalogued as p-. Together with the Pro10 I was able to record the phosphor, something I have been unable to do before." - Graham Stirling, very happy customer.

    Some lamps may be cheap but they are potentially damaging to the eyes if looked at for a prolonged period – added to which an exposed bulb was susceptible to damage and could require regular replacement.

    Other lamps required mains electricity, which was not handy for use away from home and, above all, many had a tricky on-off switch which made them difficult to use. Of course the main problem with most ultraviolet lamps is that they are fine for night-time use, but pretty useless in daylight – which means you cannot use them effectively at stamp fairs, club meetings or shops.

    The Stanley Gibbons UM05 USB Digital Autofocus Microscope is the first USB microscope we have sold that allows you to capture an image of the whole stamp with ease and is ideal as a quick and simple alternative to scanning.

    "This has to be one of the best tools I have ever purchased for my business. Since buying this my sales have gone through the roof as a result of stunning grade photos" - Dave Allwright, 'Stamps n All'.

    Whether you are creating your own album pages, sharing images of your collection with fellow philatelists, producing an image library for insurance or valuations or want to see your collection in greater detail, this microscope makes the process easier than ever.

    The autofocus option allows you to automatically zoom with a magnification ratio of 1-80x, allowing you see any object at 320x on a 22” monitor. This feature removes the hassle of trying to focus in on fine details such as errors, plate numbers and flaws. Once the operating software is loaded on your computer, simply plug in the UM05 and, with one click of the focus button on-screen, you will quickly receive the clearest images automatically.

    You can also take photos, record videos and adjust the brightness of the microscope’s 4 inbuilt LEDs from your computer, allowing you set the microscope up on its stand and take multiple images without having to reposition anything. The stand also makes it easier than ever to capture the entire stamp in full detail.

    The software provided also has features handy tools, including a useful measurement function to gauge the length, angle and area of anything you place under it.
