  • Ever heard of Nikon C mount or Nikon DS digital cameras? Yes, it does exists: Nikon just announced a SMZ-745T trinocular stereo microscope that comes equipped with a built-in 0.55x c-mount adapter permitting direct mounting of Nikon DS series digital cameras. The cameras looks like that:

    at my internship they used Zeiss cameras for microscopes, dont ask me why, but if these Nikon versions are anywhere near those, I am amazed

  • Henry

    The C-mount is a standard mount for all microscopes – it’s nothing special. Most microscopes have them regardless of the manufacturer – leica, zeiss, oly, nikon, etc. There are also T-mounts that typically couple to c-mounts.

    • WoutK89

      Maybe the mount isnt special, but per brand there is still a difference in quality I suppose in cameras

      • Henry

        Eh….I’d take either a Photometrics or Hamamatsu camera over a nikon scientific-grade.

    Did D700 have video capturing feature?
    Or does it mean a new D700 coming out soon? D700X/ D700s?

  • Kimaze

    oh darn, just relised i have a wrong understanding…dang…

    Unless Nikon releases a 20+ MP DS-camera, I’m jumping ship!

    Should not this read – “The artist formerly known as Prince”?, or did he decide that not having a name was a tad inconvenient.

    Yeah, please do a celebs and their nikons post, would be fun.

    Prince looked so old in this video. No amount of makeup can hide the fact he’s 80 yo or something by now. I don’t really understand what the role of the D700 was in this video. He wasn’t taking a photo since he had both eyes open. I guess he was just trying to use it to hide his face.

    And the fans looked and sounded beyond stupid as usual. Little sheeps.

      You close an eye when looking through the viewfinder?

      • Anony-mou

        You don’t?

        • soap

          Nope. Both eyes open when looking through any monocular optic, be it a camera, microscope, telescope, rifle scope. Mentally “tune out” the other eye.

            Not only am I not alone in doing it this way – I always believed the way I do it is the predominant way.
