Lomo SF-100TF MIcroscope

I am looking at purchasing the Lomo SF-100TF. I currently have a Konica-Minolta 8Mp camera I would like to use for some mid-range zoom photos with it (i.e. 35-50x). What would I need in order to acheive these pics (just a T adapter, or what?)

Hi

We would need to know the exact model of the camera. Is it an SLR digital? If so, to get a maximum of 10x on your pics, all you need to add to a T version of the LOMO is a t-ring for a Minolta Maxuum, such as the Celestron T-Rings For 35mm Cameras: 93418. For more magnification, you would need to add a 10x adapter (A-DTAS-01, $195 ) to the photo tube and use a 37-42mm step ring (available at a camera store) or attach a 50mm lens and use the filter threads on the lens. This would get you to the need 30x.
