Spot Imaging Diagnostic Instruments DAD Adapter Clamp Microscopes to Camera Adapter

For American Optical Microstar / Diastar 


The DD20ADT coupler adapts digital SLR and other large sensor format cameras to American Optical Diastar and Microstar IV microscopes. Its 2.0x magnification is designed to provide a wide field of view for digital SLR cameras with APS-C and APS-H format sensors, and it can be used with sensors up to 41 mm in diagonal without vignetting.  Digital SLR cameras that utilize the APS-C and APS-H sensor formats  include the Canon EOS Rebel, Canon EOS 50D, Canon EOS 60D, Canon EOS 7D, Canon EOS 1D Mark III, Canon 5D Mark II, Fujifilm Pro series, Nikon DX series, some Sony Alpha series, Pentax K series, and the Sigma SA/SD series digital SLR cameras. 

Cameras that utilize the APS-F format sensor like the Nikon FX, Canon EOS 1Ds Mark III, Canon 1D Mark IV, and some Sony Alpha series can be used with the DD20ADT with minimal vignetting.  This amount of vignetting can be cropped out of the image without losing a significant amount of the field of view. The DD20ADT can also be  used with smaller (1/2", 2/3", or 1" format) sensors to add more magnification to the imaging system. 

The top of the DD20ADT accepts a standard T mount adapter, so virtually any camera can be adapted to it.  Please add the appropriate T-mount adapter for your camera to your cart if you don't have one - this is a required component.

The bottom portion of the DD20ADT (DAD adapter) was designed for the following microscopes:
  • American Optical Diastar
  • American Optical Microstar IV
