Watch the video to see how I attached a microscope objective to my DSLR camera and to view the setup in action.
I had bellows for Canon and I used a vacuum vice to hold them.
The vacuum didn’t work too well – it didn’t hold for long enough to last throughout a whole stack,
so I wasn’t using it very often. But I did make sure that the vice weighs enough to hold my setup in place.
This is the bellows held by the vice. It’s 140mm bellows and it functions exactly like a manual macro rail. It is controlled by that knob with the twisty arrows that you see on the picture.
There are Finite-corrected and Infinity-corrected Microscope Objectives aka Finite or Infinite / Infinity.
The one I have in this setup and actually the only one I have used so far is – Finite.
In the video I mention briefly one of the main differences between the two.
This model of microscope objective needs to be at least 160mm away from the camera sensor to work.
The bellows that I had were 140mm, so in order to achieve the 160mm distance I added a M42 extension tube.
This is my camera, then the bellows, then the Canon EOS to M42 adapter, then the M42 extension tube, then the RMS adapter and finally the microscope objective.
