A milestone in digital microscopy and microphotography – the Nikon D300 and D3

The Nikon D3 is the first digital SLR camera with Live View, HDMI video output and a full format sensor

When used in conjunction with the high resolution LM DSLR adapter, both the Nikon D300 and the Nikon D3 are ideally suited to microscopy.
Excellent microscope images can be achieved with the integrated hard-coated precision optics of the LM DSLR adapter in conjunction with high quality plan fluoride or plan apochromatic microscope lenses.

The two cameras score, on the one hand, through their Live View function, which makes setting the camera to the optimum focus plane considerably easier, and on the other hand through their digital video output (HDMI). This function has been integrated into both Nikon DSLR cameras, making it possible to view a high resolution preview on an HDTV monitor.
Using HDMI (High Definition Multimedia Interface) in digital cameras means that it has become possible for the first time to take full advantage of modern monitors.
The digital HDMI connection that has been standard for a number of years on every modern plasma or LCD TFT HDTV monitor (television) has now replaced the outmoded analogue PAL video port.
The PAL standard only enables the user to transmit videos at a resolution of 768 x 576 pixels. HDTV monitors, by contrast, have a maximum resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels.

The HDMI port of the Nikon D300 or the Nikon D3 is considerably larger than the conventional analogue port and, in addition, has more electrical contacts. The old analogue video port is located above the HDMI port.

First, connect the camera to the monitor using a special HDMI cable

Then, activate the Live View mode in the camera’s menu.

We recommend the Nikon Camera Control Pro 2 software, which allows the user to control the camera functions directly from the PC, using either a cable connection (USB or LAN) or a wireless LAN interface. This makes it possible to work quickly and professionally.

Unfortunately, the Nikon Camera Control Pro2 software is not included in the price of the camera but must be ordered separately.
