The answer to your question is absolutely YES. And here is a link to a site that sells adapters to make any digital or standard camera interface with your microscope:

http://www.srb-GRITURN.com/camera-adaptors-306-c.asp

Cut and paste this link into the address bar of your internet browser and hit enter.

This site not only carries the adapters to connect any type digital camera to your microscope they can also build custom adapters to fit any camera to any microscope or any other optical product.

Their prices are reasonable and their professional staff can help you find exactly what you are looking for and they stand behind their products and their work. The only decision you have to make on your own is how much money you want to spend on your camera and what resolution you require. Real cheap digital cameras with no mounts for lenses or filters will not work of course. As you will find from the experts at SRB-GRITURN Your options are almost limitless. You can even connect HD Digital video cameras to your microscope and record HD video.

The link I provided for you is the best solution anyone could provide for you. As an added bonus here is the best camera store you will find on the net:

http://www.digicombos.com/

They even have a toll free number: 1 888 424 4786

Digital cameras and camcorders have been interfaced with microscopes and telescopes since the day after they where invented. Between these two companies You will have access to all the technical information you could ever need and the best place to purchase the right equipment at the right price. The camera shop even has cameras that will lock right up to your microscope without an adapter. I hope you find this information meets and exceeds all your needs. If so please take the time to rate my research as a fixya to reimburse me for the time I spent finding the most reliable information and companies that will serve all your requirements now and into the future.
Thank in advance,
George

Hi,
The first option is you can use the Universal microscope Bayonet adapter to connect your digital camera. The same can be sourced from any camera store . dpending upon the camera you are using.
Second option isto use a specific microscope camera that can ben sourced from the following website

Hi,

To my mind, basically yes, that is if the digital camera has the necessary fittings to mate with the bayonet slot of the microscope.

Perhaps what would be best is for you to post a picture of the bayonet fitting in your particular microscope model and what digital camera you are considering.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back as requested, how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

The pc will not connect via usb to the camera olympus 400 digital


First try uninstalling the software, rebooting your pc, and then re-installing the latest software from the Olympus website.

If that fails, then bypass the fault entirely. Buy a cheap external xDcard reader and connect that to your pc instead and upload from there instead. External readers are always faster and less problematic.

In side flash not working


Unless your camera remains under warranty, repairing the flash is usually not cost-effective. Repair is not a DIY option and it must be done professionally. If you visit the Olympus website in your country and go to the service page you will often find that there is a fixed price repair menu on offer.

You may find it's cheaper to fit an external flash to the external hotshoe especially if you can buy a good used flash, but you must ensure that you either use an Olympus or Panasonic model; you may use other independent makes such as SunPak or Metz (expensive, but really worth it) but must ensure that they're suitable for digital cameras. Older flashguns designed for 35mm film cameras can pass too much voltage through your digital camera and damage it. You may also need to activate the external flash hotshoe via the menu as on most cameras it's inactive until selected. Note that an Olympus/Panasonic badged unit will give you full automatic operation, but if you use independent models then you will have to set everything yourself for "non-dedicated" models, and on more expensive "dedicated" models you may have fully automatic operation or may have to enter some settings manually. "Dedicated" flashes are those which have electronics and features tailored to particular camera brands.

Although an external flash is bulkier, the trade-off is that even lowly specified models will far exceed the output of your built-in flash. This enables you to use flash at greater distances and also provides more even illumination of the subject.

Olympus Cameras


You can use the lens from your old OM camera on the EVOLT E-410. You would need to purchase an MF-OM-1 adapter to make those lenses fit the new digital SLR camera. Also when using those lenses the camera would need to be used in Manual mode as there is no auto focus capability when using the old OM lenses.

This is like to be the zoom motor playing up.

A repair is not a likely option.

E-330 choice of lenses


Hi Fredher,

Your wife has many lens choices for her camera.
Her camera is called the Four Third Camera.
You can use lenses made by Leica, Olympus, Panasonic and Sigma.
Also, can use older OM lenses for the Four Third, but you will need an adapter for it. Adapter can be purchased from Olympus.

Leica, Olympus and Panasonic make Four Third Cameras and lenses.

Sigma makes lenses for Four Third, too. .
You just have to tell them that you have a Four Third camera.

Try to sell that 40-150 lenses. Then buy the 50-200/2.8-3.5 SWD. If you got the money, buy the 90-250/2.8 from Olympus.
This will give you the reach for sports without getting run over.

50-200 is equal to 100-400mm
90-250 is equal to 180-500mm.

Just to get a 500mm/F2.8 on a 35mm camera will hit you over $12,000.00 USD.

If cost is a factor, then buy the Sigma APO 70-200/2.8 II EX DG Marco HSM.

70-200 = 140 to 400mm

To get a 400/2.8 will cost you $9,000.00 on a 35mm camera.

All lenses above all made for the working pros.

Hope they are helpful.

Attaching non-Olympus lenses


The E-500 body has a "bayonet" twist & click attachment for the lens. There is no way that a simple screw threaded lens can attach to the camera directly. The lens that you have are designed to screw into the front of the original Olympus lens. I have seen some of these adverts on auction sites and they are worded something like "The wide angle / Tele lenses are simply mounted in the front of the Olympus EVOLT E-500 / E-330 / E-300 standard ZUIKO Digital EZ 14-45mm lens, or any other lens with 58mm filter thread." Which maybe isn't clear enough. So the bottom line is that you need an Olympus lens to use the other lenses you have bought. Please update the question & let us know if the information given was useful to you - Good Luck!

C-770 lens


If you are talking about converter lenses (telephoto and wide angle), there are a few that will fit the Olympus C-770. You will have to use the Raynox adapter tube instead of the Olympus CLA-4 tube. There are probable others, but I could not find them. Interestingly, the Olympus TCON-17 and WCON-07 lenses are very popular and adapted to other brand of cameras.

Built-in lens


The built-in lens "all-in-one" designed to be digital, which means it is specifically matched to the CCD. Cameras offering interchangeable lenses are designed for 35mm film, which usually does not have sufficient resolution for a Megapixel CCD sensor. When interchangeable lenses are removed from the body, the CCD and internal mechanisms are exposed to dust in the environment. Contaminants are a much bigger problem on digital cameras since the CCD is much smaller that a 35mm film plane. One of the primary reasons for using interchangeable lenses is for a wide variety of focal lengths. The E-20N contains a 4x optical zoom 9mm-36mm (35mm-140mm equivalent in 35mm photography) built-in lens. In addition, there are wide angle, telephoto and macro add-on lenses. Some interchangeable lenses cost as much as the E-20 camera itself. Other lenses that were originally designed for film cameras do not deliver same focal length on a film camera as a digital camera. For example, a wide-angle 28mm lens attached to a digital camera would only provide 56mm equivalence. This system offers great flexibility and will suit approximately 95% of most shooting needs.

WCON-08B Wide Extension Lens (equivalent to 28mm f2.0 in 35mm photography, 105mm filter size) minimum focusing distance - 3.6 inches TCON-14B 1.45X Tele Extension Lens (equivalent to 200mm f2.4 in 35mm photography, 86mm filter size-tentative) minimum focusing distance -1 ft.
