They are available with projection lenses of different powers allowing some control over the magnification and the field of view. “CS” mount cameras will require part number V-C/CS to be threaded on prior to installing the adapter.


Please note: Reduction lenses (i.e. magnification factors less than 1.0x) are commonly used to compensate for the increased magnification factor inherent with cameras used on microscopes.
