Do you know any good jokes?
Well, yes we do. Here’s one of our favorites- it’s kind of long, but well worth it:
A great Sea Captain named Marco Polo loved sailing the 7 seas. One day while sailing on the seas, his 1st make came running up to him and said “Marco Polo, Marco Polo we have and enemy off the left-hand side.” Marco Polo said, “Quick, run and grab my red shirt”. The first mate ran and grabbed Marco Polo’s red shirt. Marco Polo put on the red shirt and fought an amazing battle in which he defeated the enemy ship.
Next week Marco Polo was sitting on the front of his ship and his first mate ran upto him and said “Marco Polo, Marco Polo three enemy ships off the right-hand side”. Marco Polo looked at his first mate and said “Quick, run and grab my red shirt”. The first mate ran and grabbed Marco Polo’s red shirt. Marco Polo put it on and fought another amazing battle in which he defeated all three enemy ships. At the end of the battle the first mate asked Marco Polo, “why is it that at every battle you always put on your red shirt” Marco Polo answered, “If I’m wounded during the battle I don’t want the men to see me bleed. If the men see me bleeding they may loose hope, stop fighting and we’ll lose the battle” The first mate said “so really you wear the red shirt to cover up the bleeding”. Marco Polo said “that is right”.
Next week Marco Polo was sitting on the front of his ship. First mate came running up to him and said “Marco Polo, Marco Polo. 300 enemy ships straight ahead, an entire fleet!” Marco Polo looked very concerned and said “quick, run and grab my brown pants!”
Didn’t get it? Not a problem, here’s a hint:
If the red shirt covered up the bleeding, what would the brown pants cover up?
What is Working Distance?
Loupes only focus at one specific distance (sounds like a bummer, but it’s not that bad, after all that’s what helps you maintain correct ergonomics) This distance is the working distance.
What is Depth of Field?
Although loupes only focus on one spot, there is depth that comes before and after this focal spot that provides you with a useful amount of clear, crisp magnification. This is depth of field. If get too close or too far from the focal point focus will diminish.
What is Field of View?
This is the distance that you can see (left-to-right) while looking through your loupes. As magnification increases, field of view will decrease. EPIC LOUPES boasts some of the best fields in the industry!
