Excellent pictures and video. Getting this kind of result with X100 DIC requires real skill with setting up as well as good kit, congratulations. Also another testament to how effective a relatively simple compact camera coupled directly through the eyepiece can be in capable hands.
Incidentally, what light source are you using? You must need to have a lot of light available as X100 plus DIC really soak it up. Yet surely you must be operating at low ISO on the camera to get such clean noise-free images on a small compact camera sensor?

Thank you for all the comments

Cactusdave, You're absolutely right. I always use the lowest possible ISO in my camera (value 80). The higher the sensitivity, the grainier the image is, sometimes not acceptable.
The light source in my microscope is light-bulb 15W 6V. It seems not very intensive so using lower ISO I have to compensate it with longer exposure (typically 1/4 sec.). It can cause blurred images so I have to be very careful and use selftimer.
