Question about Olympus C-180 1.70x Lens Converter
The lens is not designed to be removed and the camera will not function if you do manage to do so as it will report a lens error. To avoid this will involve bypassing various microswitches, simulating missing inputs and making other custom modifications to your camera. It's not impossible but you'll be on your own with the modifications, adapting and inventing as you go.
Ideally you either need a suitable SLR with an adaptor, or a camera which will accept an adaptor onto the front filter fitting (not all compacts and bridge cameras have them though).
You'd best contact Olympus directly for suggestions: they're a major microscope manufacturer and have always had the best solutions for using their cameras with microscopes. They have in the past produced a surprising number of microscope adapters for their models and have often produced special versions of their cameras designed solely for use with microscopes, endoscopes and similar non-standard applications.
