LM microscope adapters for DSLR or system cameras with integrated optical filters

Configuration flexibility and a high level of image quality are essential prerequisites when it comes to scientific imaging. The modular design and premium quality of our LM adapter systems make them ideally equipped to meet these requirements.

LM microscope adapters offer the option to add a filter to the adapter. This permits the use of optical filters (such as polarisation filters, grey filters, UV filters, IR filters, etc.) independently of the type of microscope being used, which means that even very basic and affordably priced microscopes can be employed for special imaging applications.

The filter (a polarisation filter, for example) is inserted at the level of the bayonet mount. This does not change the height of the adapter.

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.
