LOMO Multiscopes.....

Postby aaaaaakash on Mon Mar 13, 2006 4:55 pm

Hello,

I was hoping someone could explain the differences of these
-MULTISCOPE ™ TMH4-BF
-MULTISCOPE ™ TMH4-PH
-MULTISCOPE ™ TRH4-POL

as far as, what is the difference between Brightfield, Phase Contrast, and Polarization. (besides the price), What are the advantages and diadvantages between these three methods? My budget is around $800, and so the "MULTISCOPE ™ TMH4-BF" would fit in the budget and would be nice for adding my camera onto the microscope, but if it would not be appropriate to get a "brightfield" model, then I could stick with the BMH4/BRH4 series. I appreciate any help! Thank you!

another question, if i were to by a lomo multiscope w/ a Binocular Head (HB-45) ...are there other solutions for making it photography capable?
can I just use similiar adapters to connect my camera to one of the two eye-pieces?

ok, i thik, for practical purposes, I have found part of my answer here,

http://www.lomoplc.com/multiscopeapplicationguide.htm

which tells me that brightfield would be fine for my purposes...

now I need to decide between MULTISCOPE™ BMH4-BF and MULTISCOPE™ TMH4-BF.

I would like to integrate photography into my workflow, is there a cheaper solution that could be applied to the BMH4 model to make it adaptable to a camera, instead of spending $300 more on the trinocular?

thanks!

Hi

Your application will determine the type of LOMO to purchase.

Polarized microscopes (TRH4-POL)are primarily for the study of minerals in rock thin sections, but are also to study other inorganic materials. This type of microscope is most often used in the physical sciences - geology, physics and so on.

Phase-contrast microscopes (TMH4-PH) are used to study transparent specimens that are difficult to see in a bright field microscope. This type of microscope is most often used in biology for the study of hard to see cells such as sperm, blood cells, microorganisms, tissue and so on, but also sees use for fiber analysis and counting, and other inorganic specimens.

Bright field microscopes (TMH4-BF) are used for specimens that absorb light or for stained specimens. This is the type of microscope found in most classrooms and would be the most appropraite for learning or as a first microscope to learn proper techniques.

Hi

You can still attach a camera to one of the eyepiece tubes in the binocular version, but it will make it difficult to use visually when a camera is attached. Well worth the extra expense of the trinocular version.
