Purchase of T2 Microscope-Camera adapter
All the reason of purchasing trinocular stereo microscope was to photograph small specimens, and finally, the microscope-camera adapter has arrived from China! Microscope-camera adapters are usually be sold together with the microscopes by microscope manufacturers, but that is only limited to either for use of Nikon or Canon (or some others) DSLR only. No mirrorless adapters available in those named brands. Therefore I had to order one from eBay, shipped from China that has no brand name. This is actually super cheaper and still works same, and it is just chunk of metal piece. AmScope sells the adapter works for Nikon and Canon DLSRs for over $80.00, and what I purchased was less than $20.00 with free shipping. (Although I do not aware if there is any special features for the item from AmScope to be worth over $80).
This adapter is out of two pieces: one lens-like part attach to the camera body, and the other part that attaches to that thing and connect into the microscope. There isn’t any multiplication for this adapter, and I don’t know if it even should be.
Below are some trial shots with this adapter. First, it was little tricky to shoot, then it gets better, and since I can do the photo stacking, image quality gets better and better, I suppose.
