I’ve searched long and far for proper instruction on combining a Sony handycam to the trinocular port of my Meiji Emz8tr. All of the videos and pictures I’ve seen of this set up involve some sort of adapter piece I’m having trouble finding.

Can anyone supply valid links (and or photos) showing how to fix the camera properly to the microscope?

photos shown were found online of the set up I’m trying to accomplish

We used them at the GRS Training Center and they told me recently that the adapter tubes were discontinued. I don't know who the supplier was.

This makes sense, while on the phone with grs and Meiji they both got “awkward” for lack of better terms and pointed me toward their $1000 microscope camera as a solution. I’m convinced I should be able to find the adapter somewhere, or have it lathed out, but was told to check here first. Thanks

I liked that unit you were using and was inspired to order it for my demonstrations and YouTube videos. It all arrived yesterday, so I'm trying to get some orders out of the way this morning so I can hook it all up and try it out. Thanks for the tip!

I have bought a few to hook on to my cannon g9, and my Sony a7sii. No luck either way and have become dreams deferred.. I think there is something that happens with the optics that needs to be dealt with.. I’m hooking up to an m3z, and an mz6 (Leica/wild) tho
