How We Do It
Do you wonder how we create our imagery? Would you like to be able to do this at home? This information will be helpful for you.
We use an OMAX compound microscope, model MD827S30. It has a 3.0MP camera built-in. I got mine through Amazon.com:
- OMAX 40X-2000X Digital Binocular Biological Compound Microscope with Built-in 3.0MP USB Camera and Double Layer Mechanical Stage
The microscope itself is an excellent hobbyist model, and seems to have everything you really want on a microscope. See this page for pictures and more details.
While the microscope has a built-in camera, using the computer to fine-tune the pictures takes a good bit of effort. I have ordered a microscope adapter for a Canon Rebel T5, which I believe will take superior pictures with less effort. More on that when it arrives and I’ve had some experience to share.
