Paramecium II

Post by RogelioMoreno »

I found the following beautiful Paramecium and wanted to try a more neutral background.

Body lenght: 154 microns

All with Nikon TE300, 20x/0.75, DIC, flash and Canon T3i mounted on the TE300 front port.

Let me know if you like or do not the colors.

canon T31 and flash in live view

Post by dariuskersulis »

Hi Rogelio,

Beautiful work! I just bought the same camera canon T3i and had a few questions. Do you fire flash in live view? If so how do you accomplish that? I can't seem to be able to fire it in live view. I have non Canon flash. Is that a problem? Please advise.

Thank you!

No, I do not use flash with live view. I use mirror lock up and my microscope has the option to send 80% of the light to the camera and 20% to the binocular head, the camera and binocular head are parfocal so when I see the subject in focus the image on the camera is in focus too. I use a Nikon SB-80 flash in manual mode.

Thank you for your comments.

Got it. Unfortunately I have 100% either for tube or binocular so I'll have to figure something else out. Thank you!

dariuskersulis,

A Canon EX series flash will fire in Live View, but it automatically disables EFSC mode, ie it closes the shutter and cycles the mirror before take the picture, so a very low flash power setting will be convenient to minimise the camera induced vibration effect.

Thanks Pau,

I do happen to have Canon 430EX II, but then I suppose I need the their ST-E2 transmitter, as the one I have is non-canon therefore is not recognized by camera and will not fire.

You just can connect it with a dedicated cable with all the contacts to comunicate with the camera. There is plenty of them in ebay from chinese makers and also I think that Canon makes it.

Rogelio,
What can I say... these are (as is the Thuricola and the others) just stunning. I've never seen DIC color and contrast like you are achieving here!
