Attach Your Camera To A Microscope For Super Close Macro Photography

We've looked at a few methods of macro photography, whether making your own macro photography tube out of a Pringles can or replacing your cameraphone's lens. DIYer Ben Krasnow takes it to the next level with a microscope.

To attach his new Lumix GH1 to his microscope, Ben used a homemade adaptor using pieces from old equipment he had lying around. The barrel of the adaptor fits inside the microscope's tube, and the other end attaches to the camera's lens. Coupled with previously mentioned software CombineZM, Ben was able to stack multiple photos to create a crystal clear shot of microscopic objects, like the above grains of pollen.
