The DE12IXT adapter connects digital SLR and
other large sensor
format cameras to the sideport of Olympus IX microscopes. Its 1.2x magnification is designed to provide a wide
field of view for digital SLR cameras with 4/3" format sensors, so it
supports sensors up to 26 mm in diagonal without vignetting. Digital SLR cameras that utilize the 4/3" sensor format include Olympus E series cameras.
The DE12IXT can also be
used with smaller (1/2", 2/3", or 1" format) sensors to add more
magnification to the imaging system.
The top of the DE12IXT accepts a standard T mount adapter, so virtually
any camera can be adapted to it. Please add the appropriate T-mount adapter
for your camera to your cart if you don't have one- this is a required component.
The bottom portion of the DE12IXT was designed for the following microscopes:
- Olympus IX first series sideport (IX50, IX70)
- Olympus IX first series trinocular head (IX50, IX70)
- Olympus IX, BX or GX with U-TR30H-2 trinocular tube
