ENTER RetroZED FOR Z-STACKING WITH YOUR DSLR CAMERA......
Another new Bunton product is called RetroZED (z-axis extended depth). This modular Z-drive connects to just about any coaxial fine focus drive .... upright or inverted microscopes. Main mission: Automated Z-stacking. Dr. Brian Matsumoto was kind enough to submit the great diatom photomicrographs you see below. The first set are single focal plane views of the top and bottom of the 3D diatom structure. He also shows the girdle profile of the diatom! An Olympus BX 51 microscope with 40x DIC objective was used. The second photomicrograph illustrates the fantastic power of EDF (extended depth of focus). The completed stack is composed of about 40 individual focal planes spaced 1 micron apart. Sub-micron stepping of the fine focus is easily achieved for smaller structures when using RetroZED.

We use the Cognisys Stackshot controller and either Zerene Stacker or Helicon Focus software. It is designed for use with modern consumer DSLR and MILC large format cameras. Some of today's large format cameras have sensors the same size as a frame of 35mm photo film .... 43mm diagonal. Megapixel performance of about 50MP is available at a reasonable price. A Panasonic S1r full frame digital camera was used by Dr. Matsumoto for capturing the images you see here. The basic RetroZed kit (less software and camera) is under $800.00. This includes the controller, power supply, cable, cable Z-drive and stand plus the simple connector to use the system on just about any fine focus knob. Different diameter, interchangeable "gripper cups" are available for a nominal price. No tools needed.  Go to YouTube and search: Matsu Imaging Diatom Video

DIY EPSILON PHOTOGRAPHY WITH DSLR OR MILC


RetroFOT is a 3D printed support stand with integrated stepper motor control of the Z-focus.  Add a simple stage plate or a manual XY mechanical stage with rotational (theta) capability.   Set up with a substage condenser or simple LED backlight for small object z-stacking.  Mount your camera on a support stand and be all set for Z-stacking (EPSILON PHOTOGRAPHY) using the STACKSHOT controller.  See details on the use of RetroFOT with the USA-made VideoMAX KC from Infinity Photo Optical in Colorado.   Customized support stands and lighting are available from Bunton Instrument.....USE THE LATEST DSLR WITH FULL FRAME SENSOR (43MM DIAGONAL!)
