Photomicrography using the LM photo microscope with C-mount connector, the Nikon DS-Fi2 C-mount camera and the DS-L3 camera control unit
The LM photo microscope is a simple, no-frills unit developed especially for photomicrography and can be used with all conventional C-mount cameras (0.5" and 2/3" sensors). In our example application, we worked with the Nikon DS-Fi2 and the matching DS-L3 camera control unit.
Compared with stereo microscopes based on the Greenough or Galileo optical design, the centric optical path makes it possible to capture images of significantly higher quality. A variety of objective lenses are available to suit the customer’s needs. Lenses with a short working distance have a high numerical aperture and thus a very large image resolution. However, our range of LM microscope modules also includes long-distance objective lenses that provide extra-large working distances.
Due to its modular design, the LM photo microscope is extremely versatile and can be used in a multitude of applications. Depending on the objective selected, magnifications from 14x to 280x can be achieved.
The LM photo microscope features an integrated precision optical system designed specifically for high-performance C-mount cameras such as the Nikon DS-Fi2. Of note, the unit can be equipped with a variety of different objective lenses.
The Nikon DS-Fi2 is a C-mount colour camera with a 2/3" sensor (2560 x 1920 pixels) and 5-megapixel resolution. Burst shooting is possible at rates of about 4.4 images per second.
The Live View image is displayed on an 8.4" touchscreen via the standalone DS-L3 camera control unit. The small, compact DS-L3 controller also makes it possible to operate the camera without the use of a computer, and finished shots can be saved to an exchangeable flash card. Standard image measurements can be accomplished very conveniently directly on the touchscreen.
The LM photo microscope is particularly useful for applications in which a complete microscope is not required, such as measurement tasks, long-term studies and lengthy observations.
The LM photo microscope is also available without a stand. We offer an extensive range of suitable objective lenses for the LM photo microscope, including long-distance lenses that provide extra-large working distances.
The unit includes the following connections: network, USB, camera and DVI-F for external monitor interface.
