CCTV Cameras


CCTV cameras have a standard screw thread normally used for the lens system. For microscopy no camera lens is required as the microscope itself acts as the lens system. The screw thread can therefore be used for attaching the camera to the microscope.


Simple CCTV adaptors screw into the front of the camera unit and slide into the eye tube (either monocular, binocular or trinocular) of the microscope in place of an eyepiece. These will also fit into stereomicroscopes with an eye tube insert adapter. However because they have no lens system the field of view is greatly reduced compared to an eyepiece. Optical adapters contain a reducing lens system to restore the field of view to that observed through the microscope eyepiece and are recommended for that reason. Most of our range of microscopes have adapters listed as accessories. In addition we offer a universal optical adapter that will fit any standard trinocular tube. Modification adapters are available to fit Leitz and Olympus non standard trinocular tubes.
