One of the reasons that I bought my Canon 5D was to be able to share some of the interesting things I’ve seen through my Versamet 2 Surface Microscope.
The problem is that Unitron only made adapters for Lecia cameras. My EOS camera takes the EF series of lenses. Unfortunately I can’t seem to find any engineering drawings of the lens mount online.
My solution is to make my own from scratch. A little turning here, a little CNC code there and I should have it.
Here is the Solidworks rendering of the lens adapter. There are a few things I found difficult to measure, but I should be able to make do.
When I’m done with this, I’ll have the engineering drawings available so the next guy (or girl) will be able to skip this step.
Hooray for Machine Shops.
