Taking photographs with the Nikon SMZ18, SMZ25, SMZ800N and SMZ1270i stereo microscopes using our tried and tested LM digital adapters

The Nikon SMZ18, 25, 800N and 1270i stereo microscopes all have the same photo tube. Using the Nikon LV-TV adapter with an internal diameter of 38 mm as a basis, our LM digital adapters make it possible to attach all current DSLR and system cameras to these microscopes without any difficulty.

 

Connecting current commercially available DSLR cameras to the trinocular tubes (P2 TERG100, P2-TERG50 and P2-TL100) of the Nikon SMZ18, SMZ25m SMZ800N and SMZ1270i stereo microscopes works according to the same principle.

 

DSLRs are an excellent choice for microscopy applications. Their advantages are described below. Our LM digital adapter solutions are optimised for the different sensor sizes of the camera used and are highly flexible since they can be used on all microscopes with a standard 1x C-mount port or common 23.2 mm/30 mm eyepiece tubes. In addition, they are equipped with a plan achromatic optical system and, thanks to their modular structure, can be expanded for a variety of applications.  

We also offer our own special adapter for the P2-TERG100, P2-TERG50 and P2-TL100 trinocular tubes, which eliminates the need for the Nikon LV-TV adapter but cannot be adapted for use on other microscopes. The LM digital special adapter features a very short, compact design. Its optical system is top-grade and delivers excellent image quality. The adapter is designed for cameras with full frame sensors as these achieve the largest possible image field (100%). With APS-C sensor cameras, an image field of 69% can be obtained.

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.
