Child's play to use Nikon Eclipse 55i and 50i Microscopes for photography

With our LM digital adapter Nikon Eclipse 55i and 50i laboratory microscopes (infinite optics) with photo tubes (Y-T TV)can be in to time at all be equipped with modern DSLR-, system or c-mount cameras for high professionel photo documentation. 

Nikon Eclipse 55i / 50i photo tube YT-TV

Nikon Eclipse 55i and 50i are very often used in clinical and reserach centres.  The laboratory microscopes are available with Ergo Tube, which enables angles between 10° and 30°. The Binoculartube (C-TE Ergonomic Binocular Tube) has an horizontal orientated backward photo port and c-mount (C-TEP DSC). This one is especially built for c-mountcameras with 2/3" sensors. THe C-TEP DSC port has a built-in reducing optic (factor 0.7x) and unfortunatelly can't be removed. On this port only cameras with small sensor sizes can be used without any loss of quality. For mounting cameras with larger sensor sizes we recommend the trinoculare tubes Y-TF or Y-TT with Y-TV TV tubes (38mm inside diameter).

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.
