Filming through Microscope

Hello CML!

My first post :-) actually a query: would love to hear some solutions how to get my Alexa Mini mounted to a microscope, or how best to capture imagery in the Microscope? I believe it’s an analog scope but am still waiting on details about the microscope.

Thank you in advance for any thoughts! I am based in LA so hopefully options abound.

Most modern microscopes have photographic mounts designed for them already. These are likely to be Canon EF or Nikon F mounts, depending on the device. When you find out the model microscope you should be able to look this up. Buying the appropriate adapter should be straightforward, but you’ll need to see what you could get for your camera. 

Or you could shoot on a camera that’s in EF mount already, like a VariCam LT.  :-)

There are/were adapters available to mount cameras on microscopes.

 

I still have one somewhere! It clamps around the eyepiece and has a Pentax stills mount, or it did until I modified it. It’s so long ago I can’t remember what we did!

 

Anyway, they’re out there.
