Universal connection for all established digital single-lens reflex cameras for Nikon microscopes with V-T phototube (42 mm internal diameter)
Nikon stereomicroscopes and Nikon microscopes with fixed V-T phototubes attached to them were primarily designed to incorporate an analog microflex film cameras.
Either an original Nikon CF projection lens (PL 2x, 2.5x, 4x, 5x) or a Nikon inverted lens “Relaylens 1x I” was used. Unfortunately, however, these variants are very restricted when it comes to connecting a normal digital SLR camera, system camera or c-mountcamera.
For these Nikon microscopes we offer a special LM digital SLR adapter with integrated hard-coated precision optics, including an original T2 adapter for all models of digital SLR cameras and system cameras.
Assembly is simple. Just insert our LM digital SLR adapter, with the attached digital SLR camera, into the V-T tube and secure it with a knurled screw. A possible analog microflex photographic unit is also removed; then the LM digital SLR adapter is inserted into the V-T tube and secured with a knurled screw.

Nikon models with a trinocular tube and fixed V-T phototube (V-T phototube cannot be removed): Inverted Mikroscope TMS-F, Stereoscopic Zoom Microscopes SMZ-2T, SMZ-U
Nikon stereo microscopes and Nikon microscopes with a non-fixed, removable V-T phototube can easily be prepared for an LM digital SLR adapter with a C-mount thread. The V-T phototube is simply removed after loosening the three small Allen set screws on the phototube adapter, as shown in the picture below:
In its place, the #TUST38C tubus husk with C-mount thread is inserted in the remaining 38mm phototube adapter and is secured using the three small Allen set screws. The LM digital SLR adapter with C-mount thread and attached digital SLR camera is then screwed on.
