Digital SLR Cameras have largely taken over the photomicrography market, quickly replacing dedicated CCD imagers. Modern DSLR cameras offer such features as "live view" on a computer screen, full HD quality video and ultra high resolution digital stills. DSLRs are useful for other tasks and their pricing is very competitive. The reasoning is solid and implementation is now very easy. The VariMag II system will quickly and easily mate your DSLR camera to your microscope.VariMag II provides a solid mechanical connection combined with a quality variable magnification optical system. The research grade VariMag II system was designed to be affordable, easy to setup, easy to use, and to provide professional results.
VariMag II will fit most microscopes. Modular mounts are included to fit 23mm, 30mm and 30.5mm ocular ports as well as any common 1x "C" or "C/S" Mount.
As its name implies VariMag stands for. VariMag II offers the largest magnification range in the industry by using dual range modular photographic eyepieces.We include two photo eyepieces (1 Low Range and 1 High Range) in every kit as standard equipment. In addition VariMag II has an infinitely adjustable variable projection unit, so there are no gaps throughout the entire magnification range. For further versatility (and future adaptability) we designed the VariMag II system with an interchangeable camera mounting ring so you can use VariMag II on DSLRs of any brand, just order a new inexpensive ring for the new camera.
Whether you image for biology, pathology, materials analysis or forensics you will find the VariMag system is easy to use and provides professional results. VariMag II mounted on Camera. The VariMag II system is supplied in a custom storage case.
Things to Consider when purchasing a Microscope Adapter. Will it fit my Camera?
The VariMag II system includes one Camera mounting Ring of your choice. We have Rings for virtually all DSLR camera models.
Will it fit my Microscope? The VariMag II system includes 3 interchangeable mounts offering 5 mounting configurations.It will fit into any common 23mm, 30mm or 30.5mm Ocular Port. It will also fit any standard 1x "C" or "C/S" Mount. Note: Trinocular Ports must be equipped with an eyepiece port or a C-Mount.
A C-Mount has a 1 Diameter Male thread. A 1x C-Mount is recommended for proper image size.
Beware of adapters that use sleeve type spacers instead of providing you a full sized barrel for each mount (if you put a sleeve over a 23mm barrel to make it fit a C-Mount you are still shooting through the more restrictive inner diameter of the 23mm barrel, this can result in vignetting). Does it include a photo eyepiece? The VariMag II system includes not only one, but two Photo Eyepieces. One Low Range (1.5x-2.5x), and one High Range (2.5x-3.5x).
We have been manufacturing specialized photographic eyepieces for over 15 years, our production experience makes it possible to include two quality photo eyepieces at this modest price point. The specialized photo eyepieces included with the VariMag system are mounted in easily interchangeable cartridges for convenience. Is the magnification factor fixed or variable? As its name implies "VariMag" is a variable magnification adapter. A variable magnification adapter offers significant advantages over a fixed magnification adapter.
For example you can use variable magnification to calibrate your camera to a known scale, making measurements easier. You can use multiple magnification levels to emphasize important areas of your subject and it gives you the ability to frame your shots better. Why limit yourself to a single magnification? Does it have quality optics? The optic cartridges included with VariMag II are guaranteed diffraction limited and use a 4 Element/2 Group optical system.
The lens edges are blackened and all optics are multicoated on each air to glass surface for superior contrast, scratch and mold resistance. If your needs are critical beware of low priced hobby grade adapters. You get what you pay for in optics. Low cost adapters typically have excessive vignetting, color fringing and spherical aberration.
Can I measure with it? If you want to measure you need optics that produce a flat and linear image.
This is the downfall of many DSLR camera adapters, even units costing several times as much. You may see lots of pretty images images on their websites, but you should be asking for one.. A simple image of close, evenly spaced horizontal and vertical lines at high power.This simple image is truth serum for optics and it will show plenty about the optics being used. The most common optical defect being "spherical aberration" which will show itself as a ballooning or pincushion effect. The non-linearity of an image with pincushion effect will make accurate measuring impossible. VariMag II optics are designed to produce flat, linear images. And with variable magnification you control the image scale. That means you can calibrate the image to a known size to make measuring even easier!

Will it be obsolete soon? Due to the interchangeable camera mounting rings and flexible mounting solutions your VariMag II system will be usable for many years to come, even if you switch camera brands.
Beware of adapters that only fit a single camera and/or microscope, as a change of either may leave you needing a whole new adapter. We use the finest grades of materials and coatings to insure long life and to provide durable scratch and mold resistant optics. We also offer discounted replacement parts to our customers who have lost, damaged or modified a part of their system. We have hundreds of adapters and camera rings in stock at any one time.
If ordering an adapter elsewhere you better ask, many adapter suppliers have lead times measured in weeks. Qualification is quick and easy!
