The pictures are the usual 10x better than brightfield images, but those videos are on a different order altogether. Amazing. I've never seen any of that in brightfield. :)

I use Panasonic DMC-FX60 for both photos and videos.

Excellent video and pictures from this modestly priced little compact camera. How did you couple it to your microscope?

Microscope and camera are connect with simple universal adapter by mounting camera on adapter and clamping adapter to eyepiece.
I need only to adjust zoom (to fill full frame) and distance between camera and eyepiece.

Thank you Chris. A fine illustration of what can be achived with a simple camera method. However the quality of the DIC images is simply outstanding to start with. Is this the Polish PZO DIC condenser system with Olympus lenses, or is it an all Olympus system? Either way the components are working together superbly.

It's individual polish DIC equipment, destined to work with original objectives but I noticed much better results when I replaced original achro objectives with Nikon and Olympus (especially Olympus 40x apo).
Probably one of the reason is much better correction in comparison to simple achromats.

Chris,

Very nice indeed!
Again, some of the nicest looking DIC I've seen from "mix-and-match" equipment I've seen. Works really well together. I may have missed in an earlier post, but what is the camera that was used for the videos?

Thanks

Charles, I described before my Panasonic FX60. It can be used for movie records.
I suppose that taking photos and videos with professional camera may help to achieve better results but using this compact camera is quite simple, uncomplicated and fast.
