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.

I am not familar with your exact camera, but I would suspect you have what is call a bayonet mount.
Look for a button around the lens in the body, push it, twist the lens.

Pentax ES2; do bayonet lens fit digital Pentax SLR?


Any Pentax K-mount lens will fit any Pentax DSLR. The DSLR will fire the shutter.  There is a menu setting (RTFM) which allows the use of older lenses, but you will lose some of the automation (again RTFM). Remember to allow that the effective focal length when using a "film" lens on a DSLR body goes up by 50%.
A standard 50mm lens becomes a 75mm equivalent, but stays a large aperture.

I have 2 quantaray lenses which I brought with my 35mm SRL are these lenses compatiable with Digital SRL cameras???


Which type of lens mount, what digital camera.
Nikons will fit older Nikon lenses.
Canon it seems only fits AF lenses
Olympus digital only takes their own new mounts.
Minolta lenses will fit the new Sony/Minolta digitals.
Pentax digital will take any K-mount or older thread mount. Need to change some menu setting though. Need a K to 42mm for the thread mounts.
Mounts are all different, so a Canon won't fit a Nikon, Sony or Pentax and vise versa.

Will my olmpus lenses fit on a nikon n75 slr 35mm camera


Generally, the lenses used with the Olympus cameras will not be compatible with the Nikon cameras.

However, there are some converter adapters available in the market. You can look for the Olympus to Nikon converter adapters. These adapters will help you in using the Olympus lenses with the Nikon 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.
