Microscopy and Photography


Six years ago I started with photography using my microscope and a web cam. I wrote the program MICAM to assist me with taking photographs.

Recently I bought a Canon EOS 600D and fitted that on my microscope. As MICAM was only suitable for USB camera's that use Direct Show to present a live view image to the user, I had to think of a different method to use my Canon camera. This resulted in DIGAM.

DIGAM uses a simple method to grab an image from the camera. The method is so simple, that I think it is applicable to other cameras as well.

For more information select MICAM or DIGAM
