Microscope/Cel phone camera holder. Any recommendations?

#1 Post by wmodavis » Wed Feb 08, 2017 2:45 pm

As my first entry into the protography end of microscopy and having low to mild success handholding the camera to the eyepiece, I think my next step to consider is one of those gizmos to hold the cel phone steady. Who here has used one or more of these and might be free with your recommendations of what has worked well for you? My phone is NOT an iPhone. My only intention at this point is to document some of what I see but nothing fancy as far as some of the other fancy enhancing techniques yet.

I had seen that one Lorez.

Wondering if you have any positives or negatives based on your experience with it.

I have several of the camera/phone couplers. I'm using them in our library project and they are working very well.

I have a SnapZoom which is very sturdy. It grabs both eye pieces or the eye pieces of a pair of binoculars for example.
