Creating digital photographic documentation with entry-level (stereo and laboratory) microscopes 

Even affordably priced entry-level (stereo and laboratory) microscopes yield excellent photographic results. We carry adapter solutions for attaching DSLR, system and C-mount cameras to microscopes with a photo tube of 23.2 mm internal diameter.

Microscope phototube 23.2mm  

Currently, there are plenty of low-priced “reproduction” microscopes available, especially from Asian manufacturers, that are extremely interesting, both in terms of price and features. If, when buying a microscope, you intend to take microphotographs, then you should definitely use an instrument with an infinity-corrected system and plan objective lenses. If you want to attach a digital camera to the photo tube, this can easily be done using our LM digital adapters. In most cases, the microscope has a photo tube with an internal diameter of 23.2 mm as standard. If this is not the case, then it is usually possible to order one. The photo tube is often chrome-plated and serves as the basis for all further adapter solutions. In terms of cameras, we recommend digital SLR cameras with Live View and magnification function. In comparison to C-mount microscope cameras in the same price category, DSLR cameras deliver considerably better image quality. To help you choose the camera that is best suited for your needs, we have put together a guide and a list of camera rankings that will help you with your decision.

Among others, the following microscopes are available with a photo tube of this kind:

If the microscope does not have a photo tube and none can be retrofitted, it is always possible to mount the camera to the eyepiece tube. While using a photo tube is more convenient in terms of work flow, the optical quality is equally good with either technique.
