    Considering that they discontinued any and all products that have been in the true Micro range many years ago, I find it amazing that they still sponsor this contest?

    • BernhardAS

      Well they do of course still sell microscopes. My comment above aimed at the DSLR range.

        Did they used to produce Microscope lenses for SLRs?

          You can still attach a microscope objective on a DSLR with adapters. Just prefer an objective without the 0.17mm correction which are designed for biological samples.

      This contest is made by Nikon Instruments. This is why it is still sponsored

  • Remarkable, as always.

    These images are simply amazing. While most people are arguing over the phantom characteristics of a camera that doesn’t yet exist they are missing out on some very cool photography.

    The second place one I’d like to know of what it was, because it looks hard as hell to get that shot.

    • It says it is a turtle retina, at 400x, captured with a “differential interference contrast” technique. Many of these images are not visible light images. Fascinating stuff. Nature is amazing.

      • Neopulse

        Didn’t see it was a turtle retina, to me I thought they were muscle fibers. Just that it is so well stained that i amazed me. Thanks for clearing that up and I agree, nature is amazing.

          I thought it as hundreds and thousands on a travel towel/artifical chamois;

    I’ll have to research the setup… anyone know the best way to produce microscopic images with a Nikon? Or do you need that Nikon Microscope?

    • BernhardAS

      Yes, indeed
