I have recently purchased a nikon E200 Trinocular and I have produced some very nice looking images, unfortunatly I can't seem to get my new video with the E200 to properly upload to amazon but hopefully I will in the future. The adapter is fairly easy to disassemble for cleaning, though there are some spots I just cant't seem to get rid of but for the price of this thing I can't really complain. You can also adjust its focus if you slightly screw in or screw out the internal lens. The c-mount adapter works quite well with nikons tv tube with c-mount on top, I actually got it so that with the 40X objective I do not need to refocus when switching between binocular and trinocular and the other objectives only need a small fine focus adjustment. I do wish the c mount adapter came with a screw to keep the camera from rotating, with an hdmi, usb, and power adapter all coming out of my t3i I sometimes brush against one of the cords and it will slightly rotate the camera.

Attached video shows comparison between same photo taken through the camera adapter and through the eyepiece. Note that this is cropped from the center 1,200 x 1,200 area, so it's about 7% of the total sensor area. The quality of the image outside the center degrades fast with the adapter. Through the eyepiece the quality is acceptable to at least 5 times larger area.
Both photos are taken with Canon 5D Mark III camera, merged from a stack of 15 photos with different focus and retouched in Photoshop CC to make them as good as possible. I over-sharpened both photos because no matter what, they're a bit too soft.
The photo through the eye-piece was taken using Canon 100mm f/2.8 macro lens focused to infinity and practically touching the eye-piece. Camera was on a solid tripod.
On the positive side the build quality is good: The adapter is solid, clicks firmly in place and there is no wobble at all. The product works, and is inexpensive, and the quality is not horrible as long as you crop the middle of the image. It's not good enough for my use, but for less critical use it'll do just fine. I'm probably returning mine.
BENEFITS: price, solid construction, and being able to easily use a Canon EOS Rebel T2i with a dissecting scope for taking HD movies and clear photos.
LIMITATIONS: greatly reduced field of view, especially when having to use some of the included adapters for larger (30mm dia) ocular tubes. At the lowest power on the dissecting scope the field of view is a 3.5 cm dia circle. With the AmScope adapter this is reduced by at least 60% to a 1.5 cm wide rectangle.
I was a bit surprised that it came with a 2x lens when nearly all microscopes have a 10x ocular.
When adapting it to larger ocular tubes, it is worth making one's own adapter instead of using the included one. This allows the camera to fit further into the ocular tube and provide a slightly larger field of view. The 1.5 cm wide rectangular field of view mentioned above can be expanded to closer to 2 cm, losing only 45% of the width of field instead of 60%.
I ordered this with great hope. I have always tried to do the best I can with my microscope photographs and with this I hoped to utilize the full potential of my Pentax DSLR's big 16 mp sensor to generate some outstanding quality micrographs. Everything looked great on the camera screen. I manually focused carefully with a hoodman focus magnifier and did my test exposures with both a radio controller and a self timer to minimize camera shake. Using PLAN objectives, I tested at magnifications of 40x, 100x, 400x, and 1000x oil immersion. I downloaded the images to the computer and inspected them at 100%. The resolution at the two lower powers was clearly inferior compared to the point and shoot make-shift system I have been using. The two highest powers approached resolution parity with my old system mostly because the approach to the wavelength of light destroys much of the resolution anyway and serves as a great equalizer of microscope optics. Another very difficult problem with this adapter is that the chromatic aberration (color fringing) is horrible--worse than I've ever had to work with in any of my microscope work. I'm not sure that I could fully correct it with software in the finished product.
The chromatic aberration problem is a clue that the difficulties here probably lie in very poor optics in the microscope adapter itself. If all you want is casual 3x5 prints, then this equipment is quite easy to use and will probably work for you. However, if you have a full size microscope that takes standard eyepieces and a camera as serious as an SLR, I suspect you may be interested in real quality.
