High-quality adaptersolution for HUND 500 and 600 laboratory microscopes
Now there is also a digital adaptersolution available for connecting the Hund H500 and Hund H600 laboratory microscopes with digital SLR, mirrorless systemcameras with interchangeable lens mount and c-mount cameras. The installation is very easy and with the modular adaptersystem the application is very flexibel. The image quality is very good due to continouos innovations in sensor technology.
Hund is a well-known traditional German brand manufacturer (successor to Will, Wetzlar) and produces high-quality laboratory microscopes. The company worked closely with Leitz and Zeiss and also manufactured parts for Leitz and Zeiss.
The H600 is still available today. Developed as a modular laboratory microscope for use in medical practices and clinical laboratories, the "H600 LL HP 100" and "H600 HP LED" models are equipped with a photo tube. A quintuple revolving nosepiece can be equipped with plan achromatic and achromatic lenses. A 30 watt halogen lamp or white-light LED lighting are available as lighting variants. The modular system of the microscope also enables various contrasting methods to be combined in one stand (bright field, dark field, fluorescence, phase contrast).
The microscopes feature a photo tube with a 42mm diameter, which differs somewhat from the photo tubes from other manufacturers with this diameter.
We have therefore developed a special mechanical connection with which our adapter solution with plan achromatic precision optics can be mounted.
Conclusion: The Hund company is not as well known as Leica or Zeiss, for example, but they also offer very good microscopes. With our LM adapter solutions and the C-Mount 1x Port specially developed for the trinocular tube of microscopes, modern, high-quality cameras can be easily mounted and further enhance the microscope.
Fitting the microscope to digital single-lens reflex (DSLR), system or C-mount cameras is easy with our LM digital SLR adapters, which feature a plan achromatic optical system. Our products make it possible to capture top-quality microscope images. To help you select the adapter that is right for your camera, we have set up an online configurator on our website. You can also email us – ideally with attached photographs of your microscope.
Modern DSLR and system cameras offer the latest technology and are generally very well suited for microscopy applications. Most of them can be controlled remotely via PC/Mac. Because of their high sales volumes, they offer an excellent price/performance ratio compared to special-purpose microscope cameras.
Features of top DSLR and system cameras:
- Large, powerful full-frame sensors (36 x 24 mm)
- Sensor resolution of 50 megapixels
- High light sensitivity (ISO 100,000+)
- Extensive dynamic range (up to 14 aperture stops/f-stops)
- Short exposure times (1/8000 second):
- Full/Ultra HD (4k) video function
- Live video capture on external monitors in ultra HD quality
In most cases, these cameras are significantly more powerful than microscope cameras with smaller sensors (1/2" or 2/3"). On our website you will find our current camera recommendations and a camera ranking which is specifically tailored to microscopy applications.
