Olympus stereo with SLR

olympusslr

This is a portable stereo-microscope custom built for the Sainsbury Laboratory  to take advantage of the features of the attached Nikon SLR camera. It is particularly good for taking photos and recording movies during routine dissection. A ring LED light provides even illumination of the sample below and further modifications have increased the workable space below the optics allowing imaging/dissection of plants whilst still in their pots. The “Comfort View” eyepieces reduces user fatigue. Zoom up to 45x.
