Digital Camera Accessories You've got Cam2Com, cant take lots of pictures from that microscope, but how to attach the camera?
Various adapters for attaching cameras to the devices like microscopes, telescopes, and more.

Lens adapter for Olympus cameras. These adapters are needed to screw in additional lenses and for connecting cameras to the external equipment.

External Power Supply

For prolonged periods of work with camera using external power supply is a must.

Most power supplies from camera vendors are way overpriced and work only with a few cameras. Using a third party external power supply makes a lot of sense.

Usually cameras have voltage of the power supply written on them. The internal pin in the connector is usually + (for all known cameras, but check it! It is also often indicated on the camera near the connector). For some reason the required amperage of the power supply is never written on the camera or in the manuals. It is actually pretty high: around 2 Amps, so regular wall transformer will not work.

In our opinion one of the best is Digital Concepts CH-1010. It has selectable voltage (3v - 8.4v), can provide 2A or more for most voltages, very small (a number of them can be plugged in side by side into a regular power strip) and pretty cheap: under $15 if you Google it enough. It has plugs for pretty much any camera on the market.
