Trinocular head for BH-2 microscope

Post by Marek Mis »

Hello everybody,

I am going to buy the trinocular head for my "new" Olympus BH-2 microscope. I would prefer to buy the regular trinocular head instead the SW one, becasuse of its low price and much cheaper eyepieces. I use for photomicrography NFK 2,5X eyepiece. I am wonder is there any difference in image size formed in the camera when I'd use the regular head or SW one ? I think there is not any difference but I need some confirmation to decide, what to buy - the regular trinocular head or SW one.
And how do you think, what prices for both of these heads are the most resonable ?
I will be very grateful for the information.

For photography I believe the image from the objective by-passes the eyepieces and goes directly to the NFK, if this is true then the size of the actual trinocular head is irrelevant.
On a side note I do recommend a full-frame (36 mm sensor) camera for use with a NFK 2.5. With a smaller sensor you will lose a lot of the image in the photograph.
