  1. So I've have tried for days to try and figure out the equation for magnification of a camera verses the ocular lens on a microscope. The scope I am using is an AmScope SM-4TZZ-144A-18M3 3.5X to 180X magnification. The camera has a sensor size of 6.14x4.61mm and the calibration resolution is 4912 X 3684 (I have read this stuff matters but not how it works). The AmScope video on calibration is now almost 10 years old and doesn't explain the equation or anything. Say this is my set up oculars (which do not affect the camera) are 20x, my objective is at 4.5 (45 right?), an

    New Microscope Camera!

    Got a new "toy" for my birthday! I was wanting an "upgrade" from my Celestron (which has been quite good - but was a little lacking in some respects) and thanks to the FF members input, I decided to go with the Hayear 14 MP HDMI microscope camera. It was just over twice the price of the Celestron but is much higher resolution (and much easier to capture multiple focus images for stacking). I still like the Celestron for my "picking through matrix" - but I am super excited about getting some better, higher res pics! Interestingly, in comparison, some of the Celestron pics are still better sha
  3. howdy! Does anyone have the TOMLOV 7" LCD DIgital microscope? For Reference : https://www.amazon.com/TOMLOV-Microscope-Magnification-Ultra-Precise-Compatible/dp/B08G4Y6C65/ref=sr_1_4?dchild=1&keywords=TOMLOV&qid=1612988067&sr=8-4 If so, how do you like it? I'm looking for something that can get a little closer and clearer photos of specimens smaller than 1/8 inch. I have the Celestron Digital Pro (with a 5MP camera and it's pretty good, but I want something a little bit better but there seems to be a big "price gap" from around $100 then nothing till over $300
  4. Hi everyone. About a year ago or so I bought an exspensive camera and was going to start taking video of my fossil prep and put it on youtube. I bought a Lumix DMC FZ300. After spending waaaaaaaay too much time on the computer and buying a beginners guide book on this camera I realize it is waaaaaaaay to complicated for me! To say the least. So my question is,,,,, does anyone or can anyone recomend a simple camera that can take stills and video and can transfer those images to a PC with Windows 10? Im at my wits end. oh, and where would someone sell a brandnew camera that has only ta
  5. I normally using my Panasonic G9 with an Olympus 60mm with extension tubes or/plus Canon 500D dual element filter for the small fossil images. However with many of the fossils I am finding using my stereo AMscope (at the 3x-45x configuration (.5 reducer)) with my Panasonic Gx85 produces really good results (have to use a 1 1/4" to .96 adapter (for telescope eye pieces) to mount the camera with a T-mount plus 1 1/4" adapter)). Here is an image of the setup plus an image of a 5mm gastropod that had some interesting dark lines in the fossil. These images out of the camera are 16 MPX raw files red

    iPhone Cameras - A Warning

    I recently upgraded from an iPhone 4s to an iPhone SE. After taking a few photos, I am not at all happy with the results. Compare 4s camera (left) with SE (right): Zoom in 100% to get the full result. Note the difference in fine detail, especially the grass. As it turns out (and unfortunately, as you can plainly see), Apple decided that photos look better with aggressive noise reduction (i.e. aggressive detail reduction). I guess the watercolor/Monet-like effect is nice in some cases, but certainly not all the time. After extensive online and on
  8. Hello, Before I start searching through the topic archives, I was wondering if perhaps there was a pinned thread/discussion on recommend or preferred equipment to take photographs of ones fossils, especially shark teeth. I'm thinking of some kind of camera-microscope combination. Any help would be appreciated.

    Someone broke into my jeep last Friday night and stole my small digital camera used on collecting trips, my brand new Estwing rock pick (l3ather wrapped handle -gift from a friend) & my Estwing drilling hammer, chiselsk and some phone/ audio cables. Not enough for an insurance claim and most everyone says I lost just a bunch of hammers.
  10. I recently posted a report here about the finds I made on a trip to the Wutach Valley and promised that the next time I went there, I would finally remember to take my camera along. For those of you who may not be aware, the Wutachtal (in German) is quite a large area and also the name of a municipality in the southeastern Black Forest region. Within this area are a good number of beautiful nature reserves, the best known of which is the Wutachschlucht, or Wutach Gorge in English. It's not quite as huge as the Grand Canyon, but is certainly comparable with the Verdon Gorge, a famous tour
  11. I was wondering if anyone has any experience with simple video cameras, mag 20 - 800 x for prep work? I was thinking of getting one and putting it in my prep "box". Much cheaper than a microscope and swing arm. I could run the cable out and right to my lap top. The write-up says focal length can be adjusted out to 200 mm. More than enough to work on small fossils. thanks, Tim
  12. if you don't want to spend the money for a microscope or microscope camera here is a low budget device that will get acceptable micro pix. For $10. It will also work well on small megafossils. I got this at the mostly defunct Radio Shack, but I am sure it is still around. ( got it last X-mas) It slides on over your phone camera lens, and provides its own illumination. Just move it up or down to focus ( variable X) and take the photo. I have provided both edited and unedited pix to compare. (the only editing was to get them the same size). These specimens are from the U.Ordovician , Grant
  13. This is not a review but merely my personal experience with this camera. I borrowed this camera from a colleague and there are several things I like about it. It is tough. The specifications says It's shockproof from heights up to 2.1 metres, waterproof to 15-metre depths, freeze proof to -10°C and also able to withstand 100kg of crushing force. Nice with a camera you don't have to worry about when taking it with you out in the field looking for fossils. No more worries about the camera being crushed in the rucksack because you by mistake have placed a big fossil on top of it. I also like t
