These research-grade adapters provide superior image quality, low
price, and excellent camera stability for mounting digital SLR and other
large format sensor cameras to microscopes. A wide variety of cameras
are accommodated using the industry standard camera T-mount adapter,
while the bottom of the coupler ensures a solid fit to your microscope's
photoport. Please check our online Adapter Selector Guide
to obtain the catalog numbers for the coupler and T-mount that will
work with your particular camera and microscope model.
Wide Field of View
The 1.2x digital SLR adapter provides a wide field of view
for cameras with large format sensors up to 25 mm in diagonal. The 1.2x
adapter is ideal for the 4/3" format of the Olympus E series digital
SLR cameras. The 2.0x version supports sensors with up to 41mm diagonal
and is ideal for the APS-C and APS-H sensors used in the Canon EOS Rebel, 50D, 60D, 7D, 1D Mark III, Fujifilm Pro, Samsung, and Sony Alpha cameras. The 2.0x version is also compatible with the DX sensors in the Nikon DX SLRs, the Foveon X3 sensor used in Sigma cameras. The full frame APS-F sensor size is supported by the 2.5x version. The APS-F format sensor is used in the Nikon FX, Canon EOS 5D Mark II and Canon 1Ds Mark III.
Add Magnification to a System
The digital SLR adapters can also be used to
provide higher magnification for cameras with 1/2", 2/3", or 1" format
sensors. The digital SLR adapters add magnification from 1.8x to 8.0x
depending on the sensor and adapter used.
Compatible with a Broad Range of Camera Lens Mounts
Virtually any camera with a removable lens can be mated to these adapters
through an industry-standard "T-Mount" thread adapter. T-mounts are
available for Canon EOS, Sony-Minolta, Four Thirds Olympus Mount,
C-Mount, Sigma SA/SD Mounts, Nikon F-Mount and Samsung-Pentax K Bayonet
Mount lens mounts, among others.
Low Profile, High Quality and Great Stability
These adapters take advantage of the removable
phototube of modern microscopes to position the camera close to the
microscope body, reducing vibration. Computerized lens design
optimizations, years of adapter design experience, and precise
manufacturing ensure crisp high contrast images.
