Re: Common darter (Sympetrum striolatum) in action

Noted the setup from previous post. More than just good kit made these photos possible. Well Done, very nice action shots.

Re: Workflow - New WeMacro Rail

I use a Olympus OM-D EM5 Mk II for focus stacking with a Wemacro rail, too. The problem is, that the connector for the remote release and the data transfer is combined in one USB socket (unlike e.g. the EM1 Mk II). Therefore you need a special cable, which splits both ways. If you can`t make your o...

Re: Wanted Please - Amscope MU  Series digital microscope eyepiece camera 

Here is a reply I got from a European seller of Touptek products who I had asked about the comparability of ToupView with other USB Cameras . "In the background of most camera programs runs TWAIN, also with Toupview, a single model here and there can run on this TWAIN from Touptek (I used a Leica DS...

Re: Workflow - New WeMacro Rail

Thank you.

I had not recognised that the jack to the Wemacro Controller was 2.5mm.

Best

Re: Workflow - New WeMacro Rail

Hi The Olympus OMD EM-1 Mk1 has the same multifunctional porting to USB. This is the cable shop you mentioned. https://www.stonemaster-onlineshop.de/z ... 5-mark-ii/ The shop offers a stereo or mono 3.5 jack to the WeMacro Control Box. (I hope that is the right interpretation.) Do you know why the s...

Re: Wanted Please - Amscope MU  Series digital microscope eyepiece camera 

Hi Thanks for your reply. Here goes a long story. I have found suggestions on Google search that both Amscope MU (and possibly other Amscope cameras) and Hayear are all out of the Touptek supply stable. Again on Google I have found an Amscope reference to the MU series being able to run on ToupView ...

Re: Workflow - New WeMacro Rail

Hi

This a very useful and helpful post.

Would this cable also be suitable to use as described with an Olympus OMD EM1 Mark 1?

Thank you
