Bottom line, I use the camera in conjunction with a Celestron 44104 microscope in lieu of the 10x or 12.5x eyepieces (the camera is 15x), and my initial concerns about mechanical adaptability were unfounded, it does have an adaptor ring that fits the microscope quite nicely. The pictures are very good, and I am very happy with it, I would have given it four stars if I hadn't had to spend so much time finding software that would actually make it work to its full potential (other people may have to shop around for software, and that's a considerable additional expense).
The Celestron imager arrived in two days with expedited shipping. The imager does NOT look like the picture that is currently (May 2011) on the Amazon site. Basically, the imager that I received is a long tube that you shove into one of the ocular ports of your microscope after removing one of the oculars. I rock a new double-headed Olympus clinical microscope, and I have to use the adapter that comes with the imager. What I do is put the imager in one of the spare head oculars of my scope and then plug the imager into a spare USB port on my computer. I then look through my own oculars, get the slide centered, then focus with the imaging software (which puts a real-time miniscreen on my computer monitor). I cannot get parfocality between my oculars and the imager in the spare head, but that's a minor inconvenience to me.
The software is VERY easy to use: you literally open the software, find the image you want to take, and click. That's it. The file is saved both in a folder on the imaging software and on a file in your computer hard drive. The software itself is bare-bones...there's no way to edit your images (for example: contrast/brightness).Read more ›
As I was boxing up the 5th digital microscope product for return and refund to Amazon.com, I decided that I would just focus on a quality microscope first and worry about the computer side of things later. After spending a few hour reading up on the latest brands and models of quality scopes, I purchased the Celestron 44104 500x Power Advanced Biological Microscope from Amazon. Folks, this is a GREAT scope for the money and I highly recommend it if you are looking for something solid with excellent optics without spending a fortune! You can read my review of this great product in my reviews section. After using the scope for a few sessions and being thoroughly satisfied, I found myself still longing for that computer interface option. I then searched the web for a stand alone USB microscope camera and was pleased to see that there were such things on the market!Read more ›
