A professional, focusable direct image microscope-camera adapter provides a customised solution for modern Olympus microscopes

In microscopy, cameras with large sensors – such as mirrorless system cameras, DSLR cameras, special-purpose microscope cameras or high-speed cameras – are increasingly used for demanding imaging tasks. Their large sensors produce excellent image quality. With our adapter solutions, you can maximise your camera’s potential on Olympus microscopes with 42 mm internal diameter phototubes.
 Focusable Direct Image microscope camera adapter for Olympus microscopes

Olympus microscopes are generally robust, high-quality instruments. The LM direct image adapter DD2XZ42VAR presented on this page has been specially developed for modern Olympus microscopes with 42 mm internal diameter phototubes. Like all our products, the LM direct image adapter is equipped with high-quality precision optics and offers optical excellence and high light gathering power thanks to the large lens diameter.

The modular design has another advantage: the adapter can be focused to match the focus of the digital image to the image seen through the eyepieces.

We recommend the LM direct image adapter for sensor formats ranging from full-frame (36 mm x 24 mm) to APS-C and Micro Four Thirds (MFT/µFT). With a full-frame camera, the largest possible FOV (100%) can be obtained, while the FOV is slightly smaller (70%) with an APS-C sensor camera.

Thanks to its modular design, switching to another camera brand is very easy – the only thing that needs to be changed out is the bayonet adapter.

This special adapter is compatible with the following Olympus microscopes, among others:
