Special adapter solution for Nikon Eclipse microscopes and DSLR/DSLM cameras

The new LM microscope adapter is a custom design for all Nikon Eclipse microscopes with a 38 mm photo tube, which is available at an attractive price. Until now, the original Nikon Y-T TV tube was required to connect a DSLR camera or mirrorless system camera to these microscopes.

With our new adapter, you no longer need to buy that tube. The compact design and top-grade plan achromatic optics make this adapter an ideal partner for cameras and microscopes.

As with all of our products, it is possible to assemble the adapter solution in just a few steps.

DSLR cameras and system cameras are very well suited for use on a microscope and deliver high-quality images at an unbeatable price/performance ratio.

The LM direct image SLR adapter is optimally suited for digital cameras with an APS-C sensor, but can also be used with full-frame cameras. These achieve the largest possible (100%) field of view (FOV). With APS-C sensor cameras, an FOV of 69% can be obtained.

The modular construction of our adapter solutions enables compatibility with almost all major camera brands – all you need to do is change the camera’s bayonet adapter.

The adapter solution is compatible with the following Nikon microscopes: Eclipse E100E200E400/ E600, ME600 und 50i/55i

As an alternative to this special solution, you can still use our adapters for attaching the camera to the Y-T TV tube. This solution offers more flexibility because, thanks to its modular design, it can be used with a variety of different microscopes.

Fitting the microscope to digital single-lens reflex (DSLR), mirrorless interchangeable-lens cameras (MILC ), digital single-lens mirrorless (DSLM) 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 single-lens mirrorless (DSLM) 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 single-lens mirrorless cameras (DSLM):
- Large, powerful full-frame sensors (36 x 24 mm)
- Sensor resolution of 61 megapixels or 240 megapixels with Pixel Shift technology
- High light sensitivity (ISO 400,000+)
- Extensive dynamic range (up to 15 aperture stops/f-stops)
- Short exposure times (1/8000 second) up to 1/32,000 seconds using the digital shutter
- 4K Ultra HD  or 8K Ultra HD 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.
