Advice needed on this one please. Any one do microphotography?
I have recently purchased a Kern OSE416 microscope to help me with my botanical studies. This was taken with my canon 7d attached to the microscope with a Canon EOS microscope kit. The kit arrived today so it is its first use. I am not sure whether I have bought the correct thing it arrived with no instructions just the various parts. T2 adaptor, various extension tubes, a universal adaptor and microscope insert.
The T2 adaptor fits onto the camera and then the extension tube onto the adaptor which in turn then slips over the eyepiece of the microscope.
I have to adjust the microscope to get the subject in view. 30X magnification through the scope.

If you're getting a sharp image, you're doing something right!

Live view is probably a VERY good idea, and I'd suggest using mirror lock/delayed action to avoid any shake. That would allow you to reduce the ISO for greater quality and still have a sharp image. That's all theory as I don't have a microscope.

I'm not sure if any of the other members of the Critique Team have shot this kind of thing - but if you really want advice, post in the Critique Gallery.
