Our new range of microscope camera adapters have been carefully specified by, and manufactured for, Fullerscope. We offer a wide and ever-growing range of adapters, with both c-mount and f-mount options, for most microscopes. All our adapters are 1.0x magnification and are designed with the same optical focal plane and field of view as the more expensive versions offered directly from the microscope manufacturers. These adapters have been manufactured in the United Kingdom and are exclusively available from Fullerscope.

A C-mount is a type of lens mount commonly found on 16mm movie cameras, closed-circuit television cameras, and trinocular microscope phototubes.

C-mount lenses provide a male thread which mates with a female thread on the camera. The thread is nominally 1.000 inch (25.4 mm) in diameter, with 32 threads per inch, designated as "1-32 UN 2A" in the ANSI B1.1 standard for unified screw threads. The flange focal distance is 17.526 millimetres (0.6900 in) for a C mount.

The C-mount specification has several dimensions associated with it:

  • Mounting Thread = 1 inch x 32 tpi UN 2A
  • Length of Lens Thread = 3.8mm
  • Lens Flange Focal Distance = 17.52mm
  • Camera Depth (C-Mount Face to Image) = 17.52mm

The above dimensions are employed by all C-Mount lens manufacturers as well as all C-Mount camera manufacturers in order for any lens and camera combination to image properly.


The large variety of F-mount compatible lenses makes it the largest system of interchangeable flange-mount photographic lenses in history. Over 400 different Nikkor lenses are compatible with the system. The F-mount is also popular in scientific and industrial applications, most notably machine vision. The F-mount has been in production for over six decades - making it the only lens mount which has been produced for over 50 years.

  • Mounting Interface = Nikon F-Mount Bayonet
  • Camera Depth (F-Mount Bayonet to Image) = 46.5mm
  • Lens Flange Focal Distance = 46.5mm
