Microscope Camera Adapters for DSLR cameras

For use with the trinocular port on a microscope, these adapters can also be used with an additional adapter down an eyepiece tube. However, we do not fully recommend this as it tends to unbalance the microscope which can cause vibration and lead to blurred images. 

Standard Kit 

A standard kit which includes a photo tube, relay lens, a filter thread adapter to fit onto a DSLR T2 mount and a threaded base to attach to a C mount. In addition there is a removable horizontal bar which can be used to attach an optional vertical stabilisation bar which has a tripod mount on it to attach to the camera for extra stability if required. 

From thorough testing of this camera adapter there is vignetting present when used, however this can be removed by cropping the images once taken. 

We can supply 0.5x C mount adapters which may provide a better matched field of view.

Premium Kit

For use with the trinocular port on a microscope, these adapters can also be used with an additional adapter down an eyepiece tube. However, we do not fully recommend this as it tends to unbalance the microscope which can cause vibration and lead to blurred images. 

This adapter is high quality, Japanese made and specifically designed to give the best image quality. 

The premium kit comprises of a DSLR adapter tube, high quality Meiji relay lens, and c-mount adapter.

For the standard adapter to work you will also require a C-mount and T2 adapter. The Premium kit only requires a T2 adapter and not a c-mount. Please see drop down menu in the specific product. 

 

 

C-Mount - available separately

The C mount will be specific to your microscope and if you are in any doubt please contact us to discuss. You can alternatively use a 0.5x C-mount adapter for a wider field of view.

T2 Adapter - available separately

A T2 bayonet adapter camera adapter suitable for your model of camera. This converts the  bayonet mount on your camera to the top end of the microscope camera adapter.

Available to order in accessories below, please note we stock Hama T2 mounts as they are high quality and do not have the problems associated with cheaper T2 mounts.

The couplings of most modern cameras have complex electronic components and we strongly recommend the use of a high quality T2 mount.
