NTSC vs. PAL?
North America and several other areas (Taiwan, Chile, Philippines,
South Korea, Japan) use NTSC.
European and Australian users will need the PAL version. Please
us to order.
Q: Which is the better way
to attach this camera to a microscope?
A: If your trinocular microscope has a C-mount
tube, we recommend that. It is the preferred method to attach the Bio-VID.
If your trinoc does not have a C-mount adapter, or if you have a binoc
/ monoc scope, you must use the lens-to-eyepiece attachment. This
still works well but is a bit more cumbersome.
Q: How do I know if my trinoc tube has a C Mount?
The tube will be threaded around the outside and have an outside
diameter of about 25 mm. The actual thread size is 1"-32.
Bio-VID Color CCD Camera
Take color pictures with your trinocular microscope. Attaches
via a C / CS mount. If you have a binocular or monocular microscope,
you can still attach the BioVID via the included eyepiece adapter.
Opthalmologists & optometrists: you can attach the Bio-VID
directly to your slit lamp for prediagnostic exams.
