Canon t2i, adapter ring, Bauch & Lomb objective

This is a Canon t2i HDSLR, with a EF-S adapter, connected to a 10x objective from a Bausch & Lomb binocular microscope. This also works mounted to the microscope, and will drastically improve the shooting I’ve attempted with the Nikon 4300 which I’ve done freehand.

It may also work for 18MP stills, but I am not sure if there will be enough light.

The results of shooting 720p HD @60fps have been promising, will need to load a better profile to shoot 1080p.

    I am about to sell my 1D MkIII and buy a T2i, primarily for use on a microscope. Have you gotten any microscope video with yours yet? I am wondering what kind of settings to expect to use.

    BTW, nice looking adapter for the objective lens. I recently bought one of the cone types, but have not used it seriously yet.

    I’d love to see some micro-video with the T2i, if you have any yet.

    Hello - yes, the video in this post was shot with the rig above, through the microscope.
