Camera Adapters

GT Vision offer the widest possible range of camera adapters including many that we have designed and manufactured ourselves.  This is a very complicated area of microscopy, we strongly recommend that you email us with your requirements so we can give you an accurate answer and recommend a solution.  Please provide us with the camera make, model or type that you wish to attach, your microscope make and model and, if possible, the inner and outer diameters of your microscope's phototube or eyepiece tube onto which you wish to attach a camera.

To determine which adapter you need you will need to know the following characteristics of your system:

  • Type of camera mount
    • The most common microscopy camera is c-mount, these adapters are generally the lowest cost and most effective class of adapter for microscopy and the entire microscope manufacturing industry has standardised on this type of camera adapter.  Anything else is considered 'a special.  The more expensive is your brand of microscope, the more expensive will be the adapter.
    • Frequently requested are adapters to connect domestic cameras to microscopes.  GT Vision have a huge amount of expertise in this area and manufacture our own range of adapters, but customers must be aware of the difficulties of this coupling because the microscope nor the camera are designed for this task.  Generally speaking only DSLR or equivalent cameras can be connected with varying success.  This variation in sucess is because DSLR cameras are not considered a standard accessory by any microscope manufacturer in the world, there being simply far too many variables to guarantee a satisfactory result and this class of camera is simply not designed for convenient use on a microscope.  But, when it works, it can give superb results, For these we manufacture and supply a T-Mount adapter kit for your own experimentation.  Beware of 100% guraantees of good results from internet companies selling cheap solutions!!
  • The microscope port:
    • Trinocular headed microscopes with a photoport are the best type.
    • Eyepiece tubes can be used to attach cameras but with obvious inconveniencing effects and trying to attach heavy DSLR-type cameras to an eyepiece tube often requires additional support for the camera and may damage the microscope.
  • Microscope make and model
    • All microscopes have different diameter camera ports and the formation of the image occurs are different distances above the ports and some require additonal relay lenses to be inserted.  There is no such thing as a single adapter that will fit multiple models of micoscope.  Please advise GT Vision of yor precise microscope model and age so we can provide you with the best solution.
